Following on from its Aro- Ewa collection, Lagos-based label Adire Lounge has continued its “perfect blend for both the old and the new to have congruence” in this lookbook.
The collection, according to the brand is “borne out of the belief that being ancient in spirit, yet modern in expression is the perfect scenario to remain consistent and relevant in our ever-changing world of sustainable fashion.”
The title translates to ‘Dyed Beauty’ which is the recreation of contemporary patterns; employing old age historical techniques, coupled with the rich indigo dye, reminiscent of African indigenous designs, to celebrate our old Adire heritage.
“At the heart of the collection, ensuring sustainability of the fashion value chain is paramount; from farmer to designer, the use of cotton fabric grown and milled in Nigeria, and our collaboration with other creatives in the industry like Denike, Henri Uduku and Busayo Longe attests to our commitment to showcasing our brand ethos of ‘Made in Nigeria’,” the brand explains.
The lookbook shot against an Adire backdrop also features popular fashion bloggers, Akin Faminu and Nikki Anyasi. See more looks below.
