Folasade Adeoso Is Loud And Proud With Her ‘1953’ Collection

Nigerian artist/designer Folasade Adeoso had already impressed us with her contemporary digital art and unabashed love for Destiny’s Child. Adeoso, who recently opened her first pop-up shop and art reception, Folasade x 1953 Presents…Osun, is back to knock us out with her accessories line 1953. Her 1953 lookbook, shot by Brooklyn-based photographer Dex R. Jones, shows off handmade printed headwraps, bright totes and clutches against vibrant pink, green and orange backgrounds. Folasade’s stated that 1953 references the year her father was born in Nigeria and her accessories collection, specifically her bright printed head wraps, reminds her of home. “I then realized that I could share how head-wraps made me feel with other women,” she mentions, “It’s not just a piece of fabric. It’s a piece of my home.” Adeoso encourages women to wrap in their own unique style and hopes to eventually incorporate head wrapping in schools in Nigeria. Most of the prints on her headwraps and bags are abstract, with the exception of one brown and yellow tote with a large, flower-like design emblazoned across it. Needless to say the collection isn’t exactly for the faint of heart, but any person bold enough to rock it will be satisfied for the fall and winter.
