“Let Black be synonymous with glory” is just one of the many glorious quotes from Beyoncé’s full length film “Black is King” that’s out now on Disney+ and serves as a visual accompaniment to “The Lion King: The Gift”, her album from 2019.
During her (virtual) promo tour for the movie Beyoncé wrote on her Instagram:
“The events of 2020 have made the film’s vision and message even more relevant, as people across the world embark on a historic journey. We are all in search of safety and light. Many of us want change.
I believe that when Black people tell our own stories, we can shift the axis of the world and tell our REAL history of generational wealth and richness of soul that are not told in our history books. I pray that everyone sees the beauty and resilience of our people.”
With “Black is King”, Beyoncé features a lot of incredibly talented designers which incorporate all the richness from Black history and African tradition into their fashion, infused with a contemporary twist – more than enough reason to deep dive into their Instagram game:

We saved the designer with the most awesome name for the end – and his pajama design was available to purchase on Beyoncé’s website (but sold out faster than you could spell Beyconcé):
Oh, and before we forget it: Of course Beyoncé wore Burberry and Valentino as well. But you probably know their Instagram accounts already.
