Signore Fusion unveils Japanese-inspired collection, “Kabuki”. The collection created by Evans Akere and Emmanuel Isei, channels Japanese designs and bold colours on South-South caftans.
The designs attempt to blend Nigerian and Japanese cultures and they sure created a masterpiece.
According to the designers,
“Kabuki is a Japanese word which means ‘out of the ordinary which can be identified as Avant-garde. During our research of the Japanese history, we discovered that the modern day Tokyo was called Edo, between the period of 1603-1868. This period was characterised by economic growth, strict social order, stable population and popular enjoyment of arts and culture. This period can be seen as the best period in the history of Japanese arts and culture. Ironically, Edo is also a state in Nigeria, West Africa thus we got the inspiration to fuse both Japanese and African culture.”
The collection features earthy tones, structural prints and cuts and modern silhouettes all blending to create a classic.
