Clean and Crisp – Re Bahia’s S/S15 Lookbook

Re-Bahia-NG-Coup-dé·Tat-Collection-lorawords01 Think cupcakes – vanilla cupcake with a perfect twirl of whipped cream, sprinkles in the crane of each twirl or deliberately sitting on the naked pastry – as though painstakingly placed – sprinkle after sprinkle, smiling at you through the window of that bake shop. Why does that seem more attractive than your freshly baked batch sitting on your kitchen counter? Finishing is everything. I’m delighted to find Nigerian Label Re Bahia which I discovered last year is holding fast to the clean, simple silhouettes it’s noted for. This S/S ’15 collection Coup d’état magnifies white. While this doesn’t necessarily blow me away (my bathroom walls are white) I’m intrigued by the cuts, silhouettes and general minimalist feel of the lookbook even with the inclusion of prints. It seems effortless and I agree the designer, Orire Omatsola’s wish for “the innocence that has been lost in an era of freedom” is well manifested in this collection. While it isn’t fluffy and light as a cupcake (you wouldn’t want your clothes to be) it holds the promise of the ‘light-up’ quality of those vanilla flavored pastries. I look forward to more years of awesome wearable designs from this label. Here are my favorite looks… Re-Bahia-NG-Coup-dé·Tat-Collection-lorawordsRe-Bahia-NG-Coup-dé·Tat-Collection-lorawords-04Re-Bahia-NG-Coup-dé·Tat-Collection-lorawords-05 Re-Bahia-NG-Coup-dé·Tat-Collection-lorawords-02
