Presenting the new collection lookbook from Nigerian fashion label Re Bahia by designer Orire Omatsola, tagged “Coup d’é·tat“.
The collection’s theme is one with depth and each aesthetic carries its own meaning. According to the brand, the “clean concrete tones of white reminisce of certain innocence now lost in the great taste of freedom. A freedom so vividly entwined with an audacious disposition, like the braids on the head of our warriors. Silk Organza’s and heavy crepes introduce a new paradigm to the definition “sexy cool”, exploring the elements of elegance and expressionism to the point where sexism is but a fallacy.“
We love the creativity behind the collection with strong bold colours, simple silhouettes, tribal/ethnic accents, and print inserts towards the end of the lookbook.
