Yaya Deng x Oyster Magazine

Oyster Magazine releases an editorial featuring Kenyan-born model Yaya Deng photographed by Byron Spencer.

This editorial in Oyster Magazine's recent S/S 14 issue caught our eye for its bold direction and style. Photographed by Byron Spencer and starring Kenyan-born model Yaya Deng, the shots remind us of a mix between high-end photography and graphic painting. Styled by Caroline Sundt-Wels and Jedda-Daisy Culley, the garments come from Australian label Desert Designs' The Collector's Collection, which uses vintage fabrics from the 1980s. The pattern designs are incredible and Deng is a perfect fit for the series. Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #yayadeng.
