    Conscious Note:

    “Bobby Kolade produces all of its collections in Berlin or Southern Germany, where we can guarantee that the working environment is safe and healthy. By working with local production we are able to keep the manufacturers and their employees in business, rather than outsourcing production further abroad by supporting local businesses and lowering our carbon footprint. Working with handwoven, chemical free cottons from Ethiopia we are able to apply our artisanal technique and craftsmanship to our collections. We also work with a strict no fur and no leather policy.” -- Bobby Kolade

Brand history

Nigerian-German born designer Bobby Kolade uses dynamism to celebrate traditional wear, referencing his Ugandan upbringing alongside contemporary influences from his current residence in Berlin. From 2010 to 2012 he interned in Paris for fashion powerhouses Maison Martin Margiela and Balenciaga before launching his eponymous label in 2013. In his first official show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin, Kolade presented a collection consisting of hybrid pieces and unique fabrics that paid homage to his African origins. His passion for materials is evident in his collections, using fabric to tell a story of a specific place including motley woven and embroidered materials from the North of South Africa and most notably, bark cloth derived from the African fig tree. An advocate of sustainable and organic materials, Bobby Kolade is paving the way for eco-friendly fashion.

The SS16 collection from Bobby Kolade fuses inspirations from Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou’s photographed portraits or local Yoruba people in Benin and Nigeria and 90s female RnB icons. Steeped in tradition, Kolade’s collections are evocative of the cultures he’s portraying. In this case, hybrid styles, reinvented heritage prints and bold hues stand to represent the energy of traditional performance and contemporary dance. Spontaneous in colour and cut, pieces celebrate the power of DIY creativity with mirrored asymmetric skirts, laser-cut mesh panels and cut-out spaghetti strap tops. Late 90s hip hop idol looks are mimicked in primary-coloured crop tops, athletic hot pants and sheer oversized dresses whilst traditional ‘boubou’ Nigerian gowns are deconstructed and fabricated in lightweight high-tech materials. Intended to ‘mystify, entertain and entice the spectator,’ Kolade presents a vibrant and energetic collection.
