Olufunke Adepoju, the Creative Director of Nigerian brand, Funke Adepoju is back with a new collection called Emotions and it is stunning!
Adire prints and innovative styles adorn the new lookbook, but it still has a modern edge to it.
The official brand statement says:
The new Funke Adepoju Collection titled Emotions is an ode to the first half of 2020.
The beginning of the decade brought a wave of emotions wrapped in an unprecedented time.
The inspiration for the collection comes from the whirlwind of emotions felt by the society at the moment.”
In the words of Funke Adepoju:
“The collection is soft, easy and relaxing – a stylish yet therapeutic approach to the year’s events.”
The prints tell a story with the different expressions of the brand’s muse in recent times.”
The Brand also added:
“The story of The Funke Adepoju Woman is a unique one. The ‘Obinirin Asiko Lo Leko’ is unable to go out – yet she still expresses her style, albeit being stuck indoors.
The internal emotions she has felt this year are unable to withhold her external style. Her style, like her mind, is eternal.”
We saw poses that accentuated the different looks (happy, calm, fearless and unstoppable) and we love them.
Here are some looks from the collection:
This lookbook is proof that it is possible to turn unpleasant situations into beautiful pieces.
We see beauty from ashes in the lookbook and applaud the creative efforts of the designer, Funke Adepoju. Another lookbook that has inspired us recently is the Fe Noel Lookbook.
