Selected pieces from Orange Culture AW21/22
Orange Culture is a more than just a brand, it is a emotional sting of socially aware stories and expressions cut into clothing.
For its AW21/21 collection, the androgynous brand explores the delicate relationship between a father and his son in their most unique intimacies through the essence of time. As a socially curious and conscious brand, the Autumn Winter 21/22 collection, HONEST, spotlights fathers who celebrate and accept their sons in all their highly unexpected differences, disregarding societal pressure in exchange for honest, open and ultimately human streams of interaction. The pieces are inspired by personal archived portraits and the unspoken androgyny of men's fashion in the 70s.
Designed with the idea of a contemporary man wearing and modernizing his father's clothes, the pieces explore a range of time-capsuled fashion essentials from the 70s, such as flares, frills and delicate to hard textures.

Launched in 2011, by Adebayo Oke-Lawal, Lagos-based men’s and womenswear label, Orange Culture, is the answer to just about anyone who's interested in telling a story with the way they present themselves. Offering silhouettes with unexpected twists and employing artisanal techniques, native to the Yoruba community the label is more than a clothing line, Adebayo insists, it is a “movement” that covers universal silhouettes with an African touch.
For Adebayo, sustainability goes far beyond textiles to include a committed focus on developing his community. Each garment is manufactured in Lagos, from ethically-sourced fabrics from local Nigerian fabric makers. Adebayo believes in reducing waste and has introduced that into the fashion brands' practices with his zero to little waste manufacturing procedures, fabric sourcing methods and revamp programs that allow customers to bring a garment back for updates. Adebayo believes the highest form of sustainability however, is community development and heavily focuses on using Orange Culture as a conduit to do just that. He teaches, mentors, and creates spaces and practices manufacturing that gives back to the community on a regular basis.
Orange Culture was nominated for the prestigious LVMH prize in 2015 and was recently nominated for the International Woolmark Prize in 2018.
