Concept boutique and cafe Stranger, for their SS15 editorial explores the idea of myth creation, working with two young artists, Adeju Thompson and Tunde Alara.
This unique and mostly abstract, playful editorial was tagged 'Mythopoesis'.
They work to create images that transport the models and clothing beyond the ordinary and this is well represented from the abstract touches in the pictures.
Stranger’s thoughts, in summary: “The capacity for human beings to tell stories and imbue mundane or unusual events with greater agency through the use of narrative and myth is something that we believe has a lot of power.”
“Fashion is also about myth making and it comes through in the clothing from the designers we are stocking this season.”
They designers they plan to stock this season are;
Peir Wu, offering sportswear and womenswear “inspired by 1940s sportswear and the ease of Jean Michel Frank’s furniture”;
Contemporary menswear label U.Mi-1 from Nigerian fashion designer Gozi Ochonogor; and
iamISIGO’s SS15 collection, Taboo.
