fashion: “storytelling through clothing” – ikiré jones’ afrofuturistic spring/summer 2016 collection

August 18, 2015

Take a look at the new collection from Philly-based fashion house Ikiré Jones, an afrofuturistic Spring/Summer 2016 collection inspired by history and heritage. Ikiré Jones (the brainchild of designer and creative director Walé Oyéjidé and tailor Sam Hubler) is recognised for its striking use of texture and print, and its creators use this aesthetic to explore both their heritages and their experiences as an immigrant or “first generation kid” in America – “storytelling through clothing”, as Hubler states. Check out some lookbook images below (lensed by Rog Walker) and the collection’s accompanying short film, directed by J.M. Harper.
