After a two year hiatus, Paris based womenswear brand, iamISIGO, debuts its Autumn/Winter 2013 collection tagged ‘11 Voltaire’.
The collection is “inspired by the designer’s fascination with universal laws in the moral world that are yet to be discovered in the physical world.”
According to the designer, Bubu Ogisi, “the ’11 Voltaire’ collection was named after the arrondissement where the designer lived in Paris as well the celebrated French philosopher, Voltaire, who believed and promoted religious tolerance, freedom of expression and the separation of church and state.”
The collection comprises mainly of hand-painted pieces with light fabrics ranging from satin to woven crepes, semi-sheer fabrics (organza, chiffon) to metallic cotton. The total effect is an easy, breezy delivery that celebrates the modern woman in a minimal, yet captivating way.
iamISIGO was established in 2009 as a small independent company based in Ghana and Nigeria, iamISIGO by Bubu Ogisi seeks to create a striking awareness of how African culture can be fused with an audacious but yet minimal design aesthetic.
The brand is primarily based in Paris, France with a few pieces sold for retail at the Grey Velvet Stores Lagos, Nigeria.
We like the edgy look of this collection, what about you?
