03 May STYLE TEMPLE IS RECLAIMING POWER WITH ITS SS 18 LOOKBOOK
Nigerian Fashion Brand, Style Temple has released its campaign for Spring 2018. More than dressing women in beautiful clothes, Style Temples seeks to make a statement, urging women to reclaim their power in a society that tries to stifle them.
For Spring 2018, Og Okwonkwo; Creative Director of Style Temple, chose to infer on her collection some traditional Nigerian menswear paraphernalia; such as a distinct print and embroidery that forms the belt for the coat and base for the shift dresses, which she drew from a common Northern Nigerian hat worn by men across the Nigeria and, the impeccable structure and tailoring associated with men’s suiting. The hat signifies power and the elevated place of the man in a deeply patriarchal society, like Nigeria.
She wanted to explore how women can, through clothes, ultimately reclaim their power and place that they continue to lose in a climate like this.
The collection stayed true to the Style Temple DNA with a clean neutral palette that comprises of soft pink and grey-blue hues. The collection also flirts with the idea of fluidity, movement and, structure.
