This paragraph is somewhat unrelated to this post but I needed to get it off my chest – why are fashion press releases so deep now – everything from the fabric to the pleating is impactful, with meaning and every brand is ‘luxury’? Can’t we just make clothes, must the clothes come with a background story?
Lanre DaSilva Ajayi released her SS/17 collection titled ‘Artistic Statement’. I liked an image I saw from the collection earlier today on instagram, until I saw the rest of the shoot online. I wish its concept had been more adventurous since the whole point was to make an ‘artistic statement’. Some of clothes were also not well tailored and a little mis-matched/out of place (it’s like okay I know I want to make a statement but what am I actually wearing) – definitely not what we’ve come to know and love from the brand.
I did like a lot of the prints which I understand was a collaboration between her and artist Ayoola Gbolahan. My favourite look of this collection would have to be the black printed dresses at the bottom. Check out the collection below
