It is only 4 days away in 2021and we could already feel this year is going to be so much different from the one we all to endure for 12months in 2020, Menswear designer has released its Spring/Summer 2021 collection which is a reflection of what the designer felt when designing this new collection.
Chimmy & Co. is an ethical clothing brand inspired by colours and nature and poised to tell an African narrative through our clothing, for people who are bold, versatile and think-freely. Located in Lagos, Nigeria, the brand believes in a world where you have to be in total freedom to be you, without judgement. To experiment. To express yourself. To be brave and grab life as the extraordinary adventure it is. So we make sure everyone has an equal chance to discover all the amazing things they’re capable of – no matter who they are, where they’re from or what looks they love.
Founded by Chimmie Ijezie, a natural fashion enthusiast, the unique collection highlights exceptional pieces that demonstrate timeless qualities of innovation and craftsmanship, as well as expressing the African narrative. Chimmy and Co has released its Spring Summer 2021 lookbook which is titled “Journey to Self”, inspired by their Creative Director’s journey to self-discovery and self-realization.
According to the creative director Chimmie Ijezie:
This collection is inspired by a question form a friend ‘Who are you really?’ This motivated me to dig deeper and rediscover who I really am, and what inspires our clothing. Journey to Self is more than a collection to me, it’s more like a journey to self discovery and self-realisation. The outfits are made to be colourful, with 5 vibrant colours being used: green, blue, orange, pink and red.
For this collection, we worked with fragile fabrics like silks and satins to depict the fragility of my self realisation journey as well as other fabrics like crepes and polyester. Inspired by the seasons and time, our pieces are made to make a statement for itself: to be confident.
