The FW23 collection by Ibrahim Kamara paves the way for new evolution, while roots remain firmly grounded in the visionary approach that Virgil passed on to the people around him. Active engagement with contemporary culture sees delivery emerge as a vital new role in the metropolitan milieu. An evolved vision, seen through a new lens. A noble profession is reimagined and the result is elegant, precise and attuned to the times.
Inspiration is lifted from close to home before projecting into another realm. Everyday themes are reimagined from a fresh, inclusive perspective while Ibrahim Kamara draws on his origins, bringing influences and past rituals forward to the present. This worldbuilding engages in unshakeable childlike whimsy as an integral part of the evolutionary process.
Imagination evades logic as this collection envisions the future.
Hybrid detailing is key as the feel of a fabric takes precedence and metal work becomes textile. Prints and motifs draw on inspiration from across time and worlds. Accessories tell a story of industrialization with the human touch.
Curated by Isamaya Ffrench, the beauty looks for FW23 "LUNAR DELIVERY" are inclusive and innovative, cementing make-up as an essential accessory and extension of the show. Like the collection, beauty is driven into a new realm where the body is a canvas for expression and imagination
One concept expanded into many, never elitist or pessimistic.
