The theme for Wana Sambo Clothing‘s Spring/Summer 2013 collection – Naked – for the Nigerian design label’s 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week presentation is Modern Geometry/ Exotic Africa.
According to the designer, Wana Sambo, Naked is ” a cross section between vintage work wear and modern day wear borrowing influence from the 90’s. I imagined what the love child of a Kurt Cobain and Fela Anikulapo-Kuti‘s music would be like if it were clothing. Naked is a juxtaposition based on the reality of these two men’s lives. Naturally, Fela was almost always near naked and Kurt Cobain, who most speculates died loveless, committed suicide. Looking at the depth of the reality of their lives, I came to a conclusion that they both were naked.”
