Neutrals and Suede: IAMISIGO teases it’s Fall 16 collection

There are few Nigerian contemporary womenswear brands that are as willing to experiment as the Gbubemi Ogisi helmed IAMISIGO. Drawing inspiration from across the world and even within the designer’s own body, IAMISIGO has gone from experimental textural brands to uber minimalist. And it seems with the label’s Fall 16 collection, IAMISIGO is finally taking the plunge into the Ready To Wear high street market.

The new fall collection which debuted in Geneva at the Annual African fashion fair, shows our most left of field IAMISIGO collection yet. Gone are the pinafores and crop blouse iterations synonymous with the first half of the IAMISIGO catalog, replaced instead with the volume of the Sankofa collection (but thankfully, none of the cowries).

From what we can see of the new collection, it is super casual. There is quite literally none of the high concept driven design quirks that’s defined the label’s work over the years.

The most obvious inspiration in this collection is textural; corduroys, crushed velvets and suede are the mainstays of the collection. A lot of the detailing is minimalist too, drawstrings are used to create details and let free for volume and asymmetry is employed heavily in this collection. We’ll give a proper review when the collection is properly introduced but for now, enjoy the sneak peek.
