This Saturday, Beyoncé launched the newest House of Dereon collection alongside mom and business partner, Tina Knowles, at Selfridges as part of London Fashion Week. The mind-bending speed with which she eased from attending New York Fashion Week shows to strutting down a catwalk across the Atlantic for her own line in a sparkly black suit cut to there (all while PREGNANT like it’s NBD) is totally baffling and evocative of many wild fist-shakes and utterances of “HOW does she DO it?!!” Though admittedly, we’re not the authority on maternity wear by any stretch of the imagination, we’re not convinced that anyone could rock a full-body sequins situation whilst gestating another human being quite like Miss Bey, and for that, we light another candle and add it to the shrine (you know you have one, too).

With slinky leathers and luxurious drapes, indigenous geometric patterns and natural elements like wood and feathers, the House of Dereon designs shown on Saturday display an effortless melding of urban and tribal aesthetics. The “global nomad”-inspired collection was presented against the backdrop of a setting desert sun, and models wore harsh tribal makeup with wild hairstyles ranging from full natural curls to GIGANTIC waist-length braids worn over one shoulder.
