THE LOOKS FROM BEYONCÉ’S RENAISSANCE ALBUM IS A SARTORIAL CELEBRATION OF FASHION FOR THE AGES

When Beyoncé’s seventh studio album, RENAISSANCE, was released on Friday, July 29, it arrived to a global reception of epic proportions.

The originator of the visual album format, and the preeminent visual artist, was intentional in not leading with visuals, giving fans the opportunity to be listeners and not viewers, and allowing them to truly hear the music before they see it. However, a tease of the visuals appears in the album packaging of RENAISSANCE, and the fashion is not to be missed.

The styling team, led by costume designer and longtime Beyoncé collaborator, Marni Senofonte, explains “My goal was to mirror Beyoncé’s song writing process by honoring the legends and pioneers of fashion as well as the participants of such genres including ball, house, techno, funk, R&B and hip-hop. My team and I aimed to create a fashion Renaissance by digging into the archives of legendary houses like Thierry Mugler, Gareth Pugh, Pierre Cardin to name a few, and scoured social media to discover and feature unknown and immerging designers which, at its core, is the essence of RENAISSANCE.”
