New York-based retail label O.N.S worked in collaboration with designer Niyi Okuboyejo on the avant-garde 'For Issa' collection for the holidays. The inspiration behind the capsule was Issa Samb, who is a famed painter from Senegal, with talents that branch out to poetry, sculpting and more. Okuboyejo looked to Samb's eccentric artwork, specifically the "Laboratorie Agit’Art movement." This serves as the main visual influence behind the apparel selection, which features jackets, shirts, accessories, pants and knitwear.
The details tap sartorial elements and include stripes, dots, patchwork, prints that recall West Africa and a color palette of bright yellow, red, and orange. The fine materials used to construct the For Issa collection include corduroy, merino wool and cotton poplin.
