VINTAGE TEA : RETRO ADDICTS

Nothing is particularly new under the sun, and that’s why it’s no secret that fashion and expression seem to recycle itself every couple of decades. Lagos is the melting pot of some of the new, some of the old, and some of the in-between.

The concept for our June edition for the vintage theme focuses on the duality of retro fashion. Each piece was selected to give you a refresher course on color palettes that fit the era of the 80s to the 90s and how to incorporate it into your every day ( or night) ensemble.

While fabric reinvents itself, modern fashion embraces the human body openly, with no limitations as never before. The fluidity of gender identity, expectations, and what we thought we knew and have set standards for shows itself as something that can be broken down and rebuilt again, especially as bodies continue to explore and create fittings for themselves through revisitation of the past and reinvention of the future.

It looks that are timeless can transcend the appropriate occasion in the right weather. Brunch or Ladies Night out?

We begin to use fashion to start conversations that question traditional gender norms, hyper-femininity, or masculinity as the case may be. Style, expressed as such, helps us reimagine an alternative (less) gendered universe where a body can be diverse and limitless.
