Inspired by The Black Panthers of The 60’s – Morafa presents The Sauciety SS ’17 Collection

Published

 on

Sauciety: A non-conformist in society. Not just a rebel but an unorthodox person willing to challenge societal norms and make a statement with their sense of style.

The Sauciety collection represents that individual staking a claim in society through their sense of style, making a silent yet loud statement by adding “sauce” to their style thus refusing to succumb to a conventional look for everyday life.

The Black Panthers of the sixties, originally the Black Panther party for self-defense, was an African-American revolutionary party founded in 1966. The glory days when men and women walked around with so much confidence and their fashion was as iconic as their movement. The dawn of a new era, the rise of the new cool black, an era of creativity and visually celebrating true blackness, an era when black was poetry, the black panthers made us realise how powerful being Black is, worthy of imitation and praise.

In this collection, Morafa looks to clothe the modern day man/woman in well-structured jackets, dresses made with unconventional luxurious fabrics, including damask, wool, sequin, velvet, and the label’s unconventional use of lace as embellishments.

    Hmmmmn, okay o.
    I like the black leather shoes. If I could, I’d get me one of the jackets (coats?) even though it’s for men.
    Cause the ladies are just, mmba! And why are they showing us pictures of the women bending down like that? Hian!

    @uncle gwe gwe, what are you talking about, this is simply beautiful with a unique theme, the suits have a good cut and great fitting with great fabric, lets learn to give honor where it is due and not tear peoples hard work down with careless comments, you too design your own and post it on bellanaija let’s see.

    Oh god how I hate that bobby brown bare chest in a jacket look! (& believe me, it’s worse when it’s a hairy chest). The use of metallic materials in these clothes is nice. Otherwise they’re not my favorite looks

    I think the concept is really nice. I found the female model on instagram and she’s really pretty. Her actual handle is @mayowaa_xo anyway
