Photo via Solange's Instagram December should be a desert—the deadest news month of the year, where headlines are more dominated by reflections than announcements—but this year is unlike past ones.This week, in the smack-dab middle of the month, there was still a steady stream of news stories. Most of them, however, happened to belong to the colliding of music and fashion, which, if you still need proof, is yet another reminder of how intertwined they’ve become. Not only were this week’s music and fashion stories a welcome relief from all of the Year of Pharrell think pieces, they were also a sneak peek of what we can expect in this space next year.

Photo via Drake's Instagram Drake, like anyone else who grew up in Toronto or another wintery city, is somewhat of an expert on outerwear, which is why he’s teamed up yet again with Canada Goose. Now a seasoned jacket collaborator, Drake went with a bolder approach this time around, ditching last run’s monochromatic look for something a lot flashier: a grey scale camo with a bright orange interior. OVO also created the look in a sleeveless option, because you know you’ve made it in the rap world when you have your own puffy vest. Look for the designs to hit OVO and Canada Goose’s websites on December 18.

Photo via Solange's InstagramRecent newlywed, pro dancer, and expert cape-wearer Solange Knowles has another sneaker collaboration in the works for Puma and it’s just as coppable as the first. Solange unveiled the second installment of the new line this week on Instagram and it’s more aesthetically in line with her wedding attire than her signature ability to mix prints and pastels. Solange went with a neutral approach this time, doing up a pair of cross-trainers in white with beige trim and a pair of classic Puma sneakers in the reverse combination. While she’s at it, it would be really sweet if she could create some workout clothes to go with them.Marissa G. Muller does this every week. She's on Twitter.
