Lagos Space Programme - Aṣọ Fashion as Visual Oríkì

“Aṣọ (Dress) can be conceived as a visual form of oríkì, as the arrangement of patterns, colours, shapes, and textures on a figure can cohere into a powerful gestalt form–a ‘look’ –that is able to trigger an affective response in the perceiver. The Yoruba terms, ojú-inú (inner eye) and oju-ọnà (design consciousness) respectively refer to the intuitive and technical capacities required by an artist to engineer a visual or verbal oríkì that speaks to the subject’s ìwà, and in doing so releases àṣẹ. Ẹwà, meaning beauty, is the result of a work of art that realizes the art object’s essential nature, its inner character, its ìwà. Accordingly, aesthetic beauty cannot exist separately from a deeper ethical truth–a position that refutes dominant Eurocentric framings of aesthetics. The Lagos Space Programme conceives of clothing as oríkì, combining physical matter (colour and sound), non-physical matter (àṣẹ), and aesthetics (poeticism, rhythm, and proportion) to form resplendent pieces that reflect the ìwà of its wearers”.

LOEWE x Suna Fujita

Step into the joyful, nature-loving world of artists Shohei Fujita and Chisato Yamano, the husband and wife duo behind ceramic studio Suna Fujita.





An empty universe is a lonely place — even for a god. In a continuation of his explorations of the origins of Bumba, the vomiting creation god of Congo’s Bushongo mythology, Rich Mnisi takes us on a journey of self-discovery in SS22. This collection, Mafamba Yexe, finds its inspiration in a microscopic view of Bumba’s purge, made up of cells that, like so many others, split apart to multiply. Pain on the outside, pain on the inside, discomfort everywhere. From that discomfort, cells made echoes of their own likeness, and Bumba birthed the world. In every world, microscopic and universal, discomfort was the channel from loneliness to community. From strangeness to connection, to reflection, and eventually, to self-discovery. We return to vivid green, a grounding brand colour, meeting a fiery palette of yellows and reds across signature silhouettes. Abstract prints inspired by bacteria under a microscope creep across the body. Smooth and printed leathers lend lively tactility, while feathers offer a softer touch.

Introducing ‘My Friend Magnus’, a limited edition book published by Acne Studios and imagined by creative director Jonny Johansson. A visual ode to his long-time friend Magnus Carlsson’s creative energy and fashion archive. “Throughout the years, his vibrant personality, his taste in books and the references he would find have fuelled my inspiration and helped me in my work,” says Jonny Johansson of Carlsson. Magnus caught Johansson’s eye with one of his ensembles back in the 1990s. Since then, Magnus has curated the atmosphere of the emblematic Acne Studios Headquarters Floragatan 13. During this time, he has never worn the same outfit twice, becoming renowned for his strong sense of style.

Back to the Beginning Bokja FW22/23


Our work is rooted in memory; capturing moments from the past to reflect on the present. Through our latest Wearables collection, we remember our long and repeated journeys through the Silk Road, searching for and witnessing an ages-old savoir faire through textiles. These textiles and the extraordinary women that produced them were our first school, a space to reflect on heritage and craftsmanship. We collected and archived what we found and imagined all the possibilities of what it could become, harvesting new and contemporary items to wrap the body with poetically assembled impressions of the past.
