WAFFLESNCREAM's Rainy/Wet '18 Collection Is a Fusion of Their Love for Skate and Nigerian Culture

The streetwear label and skate collective shares the lookbook of their new threads exclusively on OkayAfrica.

Nigerian streetwear label WAFFLESNCREAM presents their Rainy/Wet '18 collection inspired by their environment and upbringing in West Africa.

Rather than suiting their collection for "Spring/Summer" seasons, they want it to represent the climate in Nigeria rather than appropriate from the west. Their biggest source of inspiration comes from the fabrics worn by their parents and grandparents at traditional events. They wanted to create a unique collection that represents their love for skate and fuses their cultural influences and references.

Their collection announcement included a campaign featuring motorcyclists from the Lagos streets and showed the raw impact WAFFLESNCREAM wants to have not only in fashion but their community as a whole. With the intention of building the skate and streetwear scene in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, the crew has held pop up's with Skepta and recently did a joint project with Patta for Skepta's BBK weekend.

With much more in store for WAFFLESNCREAM, check out their lookbook below and see pieces from a classic 5-panel, printed button ups to a 2-piece pajama look in dual colors.
