Burgeoning fashion brand, TAI.LORE under the creative direction of Tomini Tai Osagbemi has released its first-ever collection and it’s quite interesting for a debut lineup. Regardless of how crazy the vivacious city of Lagos may be, a lot of creatives have looked beyond lacking resources and keyed into the essence of Lagos using their personal perspectives and experiences as inspiration.
According to the label’s creative director:
“The Zeitgeist takes you on a journey through time, drawing its core inspiration from Lagos and the 70’s influence in fashion. We live in a city characterized by an up-tempo lifestyle, vibrance, vivacity, luminosity and freedom. From its not-so-perfect fit to its bright-bold colors that reflect the city’s Vivacity and Luminosity, each feature is clearly and cleverly portrayed. The bird insignia is a significant illustration of “Freedom”, depicted in the official colors of Lagos; red, green, yellow, and blue.
Lensed by Aham Ibeleme and styled by The Style Infidel, the Tai.Lore collection features Ford Paris’ new signee, Queen Onyemaechi. For a debut range, we are impressed at the brand’s brilliant inspiration and its translation of its idea of ready-to-wear. One can only hope its next offering will push beyond the comfort zone to leave us gasping for more.
Here’s the Tai.Lore limited collection…
