Long weekends are the absolute love of my life.
We had another of them last weekend, therefore perfect reason to go out and play on a Sunday.
I attended Orange Culture's pop up shop in Ikoyi - it was a collaboration with the artist, Dennis Osadebe.
I liked this collaboration. A lot.
To be honest, there's really nothing novel about art transcending into fashion or vice versa but there was something about this combination of two seemingly free spirits expressing similar notions through their art...something to do with Adebayo Oke-Lawal's refusal to sit with rigidity, which is reflected in the androgyny of his designs, coupled with Dennis' obvious and unrepentant love for vibrant colors with focus on "questioning power and gender roles" as described in one of his installations...
Whatever it is, it worked a charm for these two.
I liked this collaboration. A LOT.
And I went home with 2 pieces (because #BuyNigerian).
Here are some street style photos I captured there.
|Gorgeous physiognomy on this man!|
|The bag beside her is actually mine...from a Nigerian label...which I should blog about soon.|
|Crowned in Color.|
|Adebayo Oke-Lawal, the designer.|
|A closer look...and that tee shirt is one of his from the collaboration's collection.|
