No better way to close out Black History Month than with a celebration of black excellence. The No Sesso x Bephie collaborative collection was an exciting blend of tribal silhouettes meets 60’s mod alien, proving that the next revolution was in fact, finally here.
A colour palette of primarily khaki, monochrome and navy tones met orange edging and neon eyebrows for a functional military x futuristic street wear vibe. Workman jumpsuits tied with cable rope at the waist, two-tone oversized fisherman pants, and a two-piece printed cropped track top with matching pants convinced us that a utilitarian trend would soon be taking over.
The line-up featured an impressive range of incredible black talent, including Phlemuns designer James, musician Keith Charles and creative director/model Geordan, whose beautiful baby daughter was no doubt the star of the show. In her tiny tribal print dress she bopped down the runway on her mama’s hip, feeding off of the crowd’s energy with giggles and love. A definite tribute to the years of deeply rooted rich black history that were long forgotten, combined with recognition of growth, change and evolution, signified that the next revolution was here, but it had only just begun.
