Contemporary Nigerian menswear designer, Adebayo Oke-lawal created his brand ‘Orange Culture’ in 2011. Working with traditional tailoring techniques and influenced by the culture of his surroundings, he describes the brand as ‘a movement rather than just a clothing line’.
The Orange Culture SS17 collection is the union of both identity and rebellion, manifested in a playful yet provocative way. The school uniform referred to as the catalyst of the inspiration, Orange Culture asked the question; if they had a uniform, what would it be? As ever, the pieces continue to push the preconceived boundaries of what the modern man should be - toying with feminine cuts constructed from a rich menu of linens, silks, organzas and coated cottons. This flamboyant and unapologetic lookbook is masterfully executed and the garments are just delicious.
