Good morning! It’s Monday, we know, the most hated day of the week. But let Bubu Ogisi, Creative Director of Nigerian design label iamISIGO calm your nerves with her new collection, “Blood & Bones“.
The collection draws its inspiration from exploring and celebrating the human body through a unique combination of colours, style and self examination. According to Bubu, the collection was “created while I was pregnant, my body went through so many changes. My “blood” and my “bones” were creating another being, my son. My body inspired me to create a collection that reflects my innermost workings.”
The human body is a fascinating organism; its mechanism is still not fully understood by scientists. It’s no wonder that the human anatomy has inspired so many curious inventions. The burgundy section of the collection represents a more formal, sultry and sophisticated look (representing the blood). The beige/light brown designs have a rural but feminine look. They are less formal and sophisticated, organic and earthy – representing the bones of the body.
