"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”.

Gotta applaud them for this. If only this can start a chain reaction.

Candace has been a bad girl…

The dress…

Today I returned to the gym after being a lazy bum for two weeks and I had zero motivation. Jogging on the treadmill was miserable and I couldn’t take my eyes off the clock. I have this sexy dress that I want to wear when the weather gets warmer (without spanx) and I know it will fit perfectly if I drop about 10lbs…I got work to do

I had forgotten what happiness feels like, now I remember…
