On Edward Enninful’s Appointment as Editor in Chief of British Vogue and What It Means To Me As A Ghanaian

On any day, the announcement of the first black, male editor-in-chief of a Vogue iteration from the quadrumvirate of global fashion capitals is a monumental deal. On the morning of April 10, 2017, the revelation that Ghana-born Edward Enninful is to be the new editor in chief of British Vogue was validation of the personal sort…While his appointment is welcome news to believers in diversity anywhere, Ghanaians everywhere were claiming a win over our friendly rivals in all things (especially Jollof), Nigeria.

Fluid Geometricity

What I found when I stepped into the shop was this duality of a dress: a neon number that was not garish, remarkable in its rigid three-dimesionality and yet somehow still fluid as it oozed on my frame like a bouncing tear-drop. The Drip Bounce tunic it is aptly christened, for obvious reasons: as much a box is as outside the box, it bounces with the gait like a slinky. The dress was a case study, as only Miyake knows how, in how colour binary elevates the visual impact of shape.

Fukinsei: Behind Wabi-Sabi

A few weeks ago, I shared some thoughts on the Japanese aesthetic concept of Wabi-Sabi and how re-calibrating my perspective to practice Wabi-Sabi an ideal for living has not only brought more beauty into my life, but been essential to my survival. Now, producer Josh Gwynn and I share with you behind the scenes action from that shoot. The short film, Fukinsei, is a non-linear irregularity; an experiment in story telling both visual and narrative.What better way to share the tenets of an aesthetic concept that aspires to asymmetry and imperfection than by making a piece that is itself, well, quite Wabi-Sabi.

Scattered Light: The Delpozo SS17 Collection

The Spanish label’s SS17 delectation did not veer off its fabled path of constructing a dream of whimsical yet architectural glory. I was struck by the sublime paradox of Font’s oeuvre. These are clothes that are at once sculptural and serous, detailed and restrained: the defile was a parade of maximalism executed with a minimalist’s flare.

Wabi-Sabi: As Is Fashion So Is Life

Pleats are made by folding, contorting as it were. They are sealed in through the application of immense heat. From compression, fabric is imbued with poetic buoyancy. It has been that sort of year for me indeed. I have been pressed through some intense situations and the mercury has risen from fierce heat of living.
