"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.

It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.

“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”

“When someone shows you their heart, their past, their wounds, they have entrusted you with the deepest part of themselves. It is the part of themselves that makes them uniquely beautiful. To be trusted in this way is a great honor. Guard that trust with your life.”

“For I am I: ergo, the truth of myself; my own sphinx, conflict, chaos, vortex—asymmetric to all rhythms, oblique to all paths. I am the prism between black and white: mine own unison in duality”

A devastating disaster happened on April 15th. South Korean ferry Sewol sank which caused 28 deaths, 179 rescued, and most importantly 268 still missing out of 475 total who were on board. Shockingly, 325 of the passengers were high schoolers who were on a class field trip to Jeju island. On-board safety announcements informed passengers to stay in their places and put on life jackets to await rescues. Soon the ship began tilting over and there was no time for the passengers to escape. This horrible accident could have been prevented if the captain handled the situation professionally. However, he was THE FIRST one to get rescued and he abandoned the rest of the passengers who were trembling in fear. IF he made one brief announcement telling them to leave their room and come out to the deck immediately, this horrendous incident wouldn’t have happened. No word can express my condolences. Over 50 hours have passed and the cold water temperature even lowers the possibility of the remaining ones’ survival. I will pray for the lost ones and their families, the unknown survivors still trapped inside the ferry, and the brave divers/rescuers who are out in the cold and dangerous sea (considering the stormy weather these past 3 days). Keep strong South Korea and never lose hope. 

유가족분들, 현재 어둡고 차가운 바다에서 공포에 떨고있을 실종자분들, 궂은 날씨에도 불구하고 자신의 목숨을 걸며 구조 작업에 열중하시는 구조대원분들, 그리고 지금 초조하게 이 상황을 지켜보는 모든 분들 희망 잃지 마시고 좋은 결과가 있기를 기도해봅시다. 최대한 많은 인원이 돌아왔으면 좋겠습니다. 조금만 더 버텨주세요.
