O.N.S Clothing Announces Collaborative Creative Lab Capsule with Post Imperial:
Designer, Niyi Okuboyejo
O.N.S, is excited to announce the upcoming Holiday Drop from its ongoing Creative Lab project. The eclectic, artisanal collection is a collaboration with New York designer, Niyi Okuboyejo of the much heralded, tailored menswear brand, Post Imperial.
For the upcoming O.N.S X Niyi Okuboyejo capsule, the designer took inspiration from the prolific Senegalese painter, poet, sculptor and playwright, Issa Samb. Samb was a towering figure in modern African Art, and his works have been displayed in gallery exhibitions all over the world. Issa passed away in 2017, but his avant garde Laboratorie Agit’Art movement is still alive and thriving.
the collection channels Samb’s eccentric style and inimitably flamboyant aesthetic. Highlight pieces include a striking kimono collar puffer jacket with impressive patchwork detail, quilted blazers/shirting adorned with West African prints, two tone chunky turtlenecks made from fine merino wool, and an upscale athleisure assortment of comfy joggers and sweatshirts. The collection is rounded out nicely with thin wale corduroy painter trousers, poplin polka dot wovens and complementing accessories (scarfs, berets, totes).
This new collaboration is part of the O.N.S Creative Lab initiative, a series of noteworthy collaborations with talented, emerging New York City designers. The new O.N.S X Niyi Okuboyejo capsule collection will be available in SoHo on November 6th.
