The collection features a modern take on the traditional man with loose and emphasized sleeves and hems with loose necklines. It also showcases brown tones with over sized linen shirts.
The collection is inspired by artistic and individual moments. The creative director, Ian, had this to say; “For my Spring Summer 16 collection titled ‘1760’ – a number but more importantly my identity for a certain gruesome period in my life spent in a remote part of Western Nigeria.
The experience from this time and Alberto Burri’s work on Sacchi mesh to explain this somewhat traumatic timeline. The collection is a visual and emotional interpretation of my habitation in that environment.
The predominant colour being blue emphasizes the difficulty in accepting the change I had to endure, an inflexible mindset. But then over time, after much cogitation, I reckoned that embracing the situation and creating my own acceptable version of reality would be the better option.“
