While we at The Other Style are quite particular about and really appreciate a designer who takes the time to give us show notes, we will never pass up on a good interview. The good people over at Pulse TV sat down with arguably Nigeria’s youngest high profile menswear designer Josiah Samuels, creative director of Jason Porshe to talk about his inspirations, his motivations and the idea behind that polarizing Chronos and Kairos collection.
Samuels talks about the his decision to expand the Jason Porshe label by adding a womenswear line, and that particular line’s less than stellar first capsule collection.
There are quite a number of gems in the interview, especially concerning Samuels’most recent collection. Kairos vs Chronos wasn’t our favorite collection from the label as evinced by our review, so it was interesting to hear the designer explain the motivations behind the misleading name for the collection as well as the palette choices.
Enough from us, here’s the interview.
