DAZED SPRING/SUMMER 2018
We all have personal geographies – places of refuge, places you carry with you and keep safe. For the spring/summer issue of Dazed, Solange takes us to hers: to the precious pockets of Jamaica that have proven to be a spiritual home for the singer, and have shaped the sound of her highly anticipated follow-up to A Seat at the Table.
Captured by Jackie Nickerson and styled by Katie Shillingford, the era-defining singer reveals her love-affair with the island in a heartfelt essay. It’s a spirit that runs throughout the issue, which spotlights the creatives who are shaped by environments both real and imagined: from 1990s Paris, to present-day South Africa, and a version of Japan set 20 years in the future…
