Face Time with Solange Knowles

The stylish DJ keeps it light and bright

Solange Knowles

Wearing sunny yellow Christopher Kane separates (accessorized with metallic Acne Studios pumps), singer Solange Knowles almost eerily coordinated with Japanese watch label Q&Q’s candy-colored pieces at the US launch event on Thursday evening. But that wasn’t the only coincidence: “My mom is going to be hurt when I say this, but she named me after a watch,” Knowles, who deejayed a set that combined contemporary pop hits and classic hip hop, said with a smile. “Piaget is my middle name. It was a very new brand at the time [that I was born] and she just thought it sounded really pretty.”

Taking a break from her performance, the singer showed off her wrists, which were covered with a smattering of bracelets and a timepiece. “I’m really late on this whole ‘arm party’ thing,” she said, admitting that she has never bought a watch before. “I’m not as fashionable as people think.” Somehow, we think she was quite literally born into it.
