Orange Culture's Nigerian Staircase-Inspired 'Dovetail' Collection

Nigerian menswear label Orange Culture Presents their Resort 2015 collection 'Dovetail'.

Nigerian designer Adebayo Oke-Lawal's Orange Culture label release their Resort 2015 collection Dovetail, which draws unlikely inspiration from staircases in Nigeria. "The imperfection of staircases in Lagos, Nigeria doesn't necessarily take away from [their] beauty as the... lines, joints and dimensions make each step an exciting adventure, a step into an airy discovery," the designer explains, "the staircases have a rustic appearance that reinterprets the natural structure of wood and inspired the prints developed for the collection." Well, we definitely love the idea and appreciate the patchwork happening on the garments' oversized pieces. The mix of materials is audacious and makes the whole collection stand out.
