Solange Knowles and Slick Woods Are the Faces of Mercedes-Benz's #WeWonder Initiative

Introducing the global art industry changemakers.

By //Fashion

Mercedes-Benz Collective’s new campaign #WeWonder features a group of creatives including musician Solange Knowles and model Slick Woods.

The initiative was designed to shed light on the world’s most inspiring visionaries and their ideas about the future in the fashion and art industries. Art curator, Kimberly Drew, Opening Ceremony founders, Carol Kim and Humberto Leon, artistic director Hans Ulrich Obrist and HYPEBEAST founder, Kevin Ma were also selected as innovative champions within the arts.

Solange Knowles shared her thoughts on the partnership:

“The power of conversation is invaluable, and I’m extremely excited to explore the future of technology alongside a partner who has so consistently invested in the arts in such an innovative way. I believe in this group of people, and their contributions to shifting the culture of art, fashion and expression.”

Slick added:

“The advancement of technology not only affects everyone but cannot progress without collaborations between different walks of life including age, race, religion and social status.”

The chosen visionaries’ individual themes and content will be released throughout 2018 through a series of global events, appearances and digital activations.
