Artist Vigilism and men’s wear designer Ikiré Jones collaborate to create paradise, an “Escape to New Lagos.”
New Makoko Village [Lagos 2081 A.D.]
These pieces tell a story of an imagining of Lagos in the year 2081 A.D. The Great Crude Explosion has just occurred; leaving oil flowing freely through the streets of the slums. Politicians have been exiled at the heels of bomb blasts and the populace’s uprising. The building of a new Centre of the World has begun, much to the bewilderment of Western nations. This is the birth of New Lagos…and men of taste are wearing Ikiré Jones.
