“Naked” – Presenting the Wana Sambo 2013 Spring/Summer Ready To Wear Collection Lookbook

Wana Sambo 2013 Spring Summer Ready To Wear Collection Naked - BellaNaija - October2013008

Presenting the Spring/Summer collection lookbook for Nigerian design label Wana Sambo – “Naked”. The design label premiered the collection at the 2012 Lagos Fashion & Design Week and now as they prepare to unveil their SS14 collection, here’s the lookbook for the Naked collection.

According to the design label

The collection is a cross between vintage work wear and modern daywear borrowing its influence from the 90s. I imagined what the love child of a Kurt Cobain and Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s music would be like if it were clothing.

The title, “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. According to the dictionary, one of the various definitions of the word ‘Naked’ means ‘without clothes or protection’. Fela was more the former and Kurt the latter.

The WS SS13 collection is a struggle for the placement of an identity on these two legendary musician’s love child. I used a lot of reds, blacks, off-whites, peach, gold and abstract fabric patterns, textures and colors. I also played with the idea of being both legends personal stylist and transferring their creativity, art and personality unto their female offspring, whose first name would be ‘Naked’ and last name, ‘Kuti-Cobain’.

Check out the Wana Sambo collection lookbook for 2013 Spring/Summer Ready to Wear.

    Wana Wana! You have returned and I see you’ve improved. Your style and aesthetic is certainly not for everyone. I’m still afraid of your chiffon pieces sha.

    Wana Sambo, I I think your collection is nice, I don’t understand what Kurt cobain has got to do with it…are you just trying to sound intelligent or what with this your write up? Besides, *I don’t know if this is an error from Bella naija* isn’t this the write up for your last collection?

    Kurt Cobain?

    How? Where? WHAT!?
    I appreciate the effort but that explanation for this collection is all over the place and honestly, you’re reaching.

    Naked. Kuti. Cobain!? Take it down a notch. The collection is all over the place. It’s like you went through Rihanna’s instagram, picked out all the trends and threw them into one collection.

    Your look book is way too trendy for me…. and last season’s trends at that.

    Where is 2014?

    Anyway I see possibilities as in nice concept but most of these designs look like they were poorly executed.
