This collaboration between Brooklyn based artist, Olalekan Jeyifous and fashion designer Wale Oyedeji of Ikire Jones, is slowly turning into a modern day classic. For the release of Ikire Jones’ 2014 Fall/Winter Collection: The Escape to New Lagos, this duo decided to create a graphic lookbook instead of the usual photo-shoot release.
This series has been one of our favourite graphic representations for the past few years.
The concept was to illustrate major African metropolises at the end of the 21st century. What began as a feature of Lagos, spread to the other two major African nodes; Johannesburg and Nairobi.
