High Summer 'Hair' With Caven + Etomi's Kingdom

Caven + Etomi presented the latest Kingdom High Summer collection, entitled 'Hair', inspired by photography's work of J.D Okhai Ojeikere.

International fashion company CAVEN + ETOMI's streetwear sub-branch Kingdom concentrates on luxury urban apparel inspired by African heritage, culture and art. Kingdom just released their high summer Hair collection featuring hand-drawn illustrations inspired by Nigerian photographer J.D Okhai Ojeikere's Hairstyles series. The brand asked West African afro-soul artist Kaliné to model for the lookbook. She embodies the character and fits perfectly with the aesthetic Kindom are looking for, "a mix of old and new, eclectic yet modern." Scroll through our gallery above to view the lookbook,  photographed by Alejandro Cerdena in New York City,  and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #kingdom.
