Dawn Richard for Saint Heron

Dawn Richard is one of the most underrated R&B singers in the game. Perhaps sensing this too, Solange Knowles’ R&B label and cultural website Saint Heron recently interviewed the New Orleans-bred singer and shot an accompanying photo spread to give the talented singer some much-deserved shine. And just in time for her new record too!

Shot by Brandon Hicks and with words by Nia Porter (Dawn Richard’s cousin), the mastermind behind the collage-style spread is Armina Mussa, creative director, fashion designer, and boutique owner.  Right off the bat, I loved the boldness of Dawn’s marigold coat paired with sleek black hair and glittery, white flatforms. The patched-together style lends the images a psychedelic quality, which mirrors Dawn’s style of experimental R&B.

Dawn Richard’s new record is called Blackheart and it is all sorts of sick. You can listen to it here and read the rest of her interview with Saint Heron here.
