KENZO Folio #1

Words by Marvin Maddix

 

 

Each season, KENZO asks distinctive creative voices to offer varying points of view on KENZO collections. For Summer 2017, KENZO commissioned curator and filmmaker Akinola Davies Jr. to conceive a project around its collections and the notion of “ceremony”.

In teaming up with photographer Ruth Ossai and stylist Ibrahim Kamara, they captured Nigeria’s Nsukka population in a beautiful and captivating way – in a tone that mirrors KENZO’s own vision of beauty. ‘Gidi gidi bu ugwu eze‘, an Igbo proverb meaning ‘Unity is Strength‘, encapsulates the energy we witness within the images.
