Menswear brand Russell Solomon has released its debut collection for Cruise/Wet 2018.
Titled Diary of a Red Haired Boy, the collection is inspired by the personal story of the Creative Director Gabriel Ugo Solomon who was one of the Lagos Fashion Week Fashion Focus finalists.
Significant childhood expressions such as playing with car tyres, deconstruction and remodeling of garments, a trip to the village, playing by the river bank surrounded by beautiful bamboo trees, making triangular shaped kite, wearing platform sandals and shoes for elevation, mind-traveling, also developing a strong attraction for the woman and her unique form.
The designer makes use of colours chiffon, pure African cotton, wool, and polyester fabrics with patchwork, hand-beading and other techniques to bring his childhood memories to life in this collection.
