B-side By Walé Celebrates 20th Anniversary With 'The Faded Weekend' SS15 Streetwear Collection

British-Nigerian designer Walé Adeyemi's B-side By Walé celebrates its 20th anniversary with 'The Faded Weekend' SS15 collection.

B-side By Walé is the London-based streetwear label of British-Nigerian designer (and former New Era creative director) Walé Adeyemi. Founded in 1995, the brand has been worn by the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Tinie Tempah, Ellie Goulding, Joey Bada$$, and Cara Delevingne, to name a few. For their 20th anniversary, the label recently unveiled a sporty Spring/Summer 2015 collection entitled The Faded Weekend. According to a press release, "the key inspiration for this collection presents the idea of a weekend in the city from the laidback morning through to the chaos of the night time. B-side by Walé wanted to present this inspiration with different sections using a contrast of color blocking, neutrals and animal prints in order to create full outfits that represent a lifestyle from am to pm." The collection includes a cozy series snakeskin print cotton jerseys and dresses, sweatshirts, sweatpants, shorts, tees and tanks. See photos from The Faded Weekend lookbook above. The collection is available now at Harvey Nichols and online via B-side By Walé. For more, follow the label on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
