Avec Ces Frères Spring/Summer 2016 — “Rockers in the Congo”

March 3, 2016 / 0 Comments

After presenting their Special Alternative Set and collection “Who Fathered Your Thought” at the 89th Pitti Oumo show, design duo – Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh of Art Comes First have produced their Spring Summer 2016 collection, “Rockers in the Congo”.

Finding inspiration in the beautiful grit of back streets, balmy nights of Kingston, Jamaica and the disconformity of their childhood heroes (such as Haile Selassi, Malcolm X and Jimi Hendrix), the duo turned to South African photographer Kristin-Lee Moolman to shoot their lookbook in the streets of Kinshasa, Congo.

Art Comes First “punk tailoring” attitude sees them concentrate on re-imagined staples and tailoring to perfection, while still maintaining a sense of modernism and artistry.

This collection truly tells a story of individuality.
