"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.
It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.
“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art.  Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context.  Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”

Contemporary Art Week!
I absolutely love the concept behind this. Especially: “reverse lens to the past”.

Kanye West Album Cover Redesigns - Rodney Manabat (2013)
I think it’s safe to say the album cover for ‘Yeezus’ is the definition of minimalism. With the release less than a month ago, it inspired me to recreate all of Ye’s solo album covers in this minimalist aesthetic, from the evolution of ‘Dropout Bear’ to the highly criticized ‘Yeezus.’ Enjoy.
