An icon that needs no introduction, Deola Sagoe’s new Komole collection, Tropical Galactica SS20 01 Surreal™️, is a futuristic take on a timeless foundation piece – the iro and buba. A futuristic take on an iconic look.
Of course, Deola’s designs are not new and this is not the first time she has put a classy, elegant touch on the traditional iro and buba form factor. What is different about the Tropical Galactica SS20 01 Surreal collection goes beyond what is already expected of the House of Deola fashion house.
The new collection offers strikingly futuristic color blocking accents, properly sculpted new-age silhouettes and layered forms. Across the collection, asymmetrical details point toward a refreshing and cosmopolitan twist, pushing a new narrative in the long and colorful history of the traditional Yoruba dress.
Beyond giving a new perspective on the future of iro and buba-inspired fashion, the Tropical Galactica SS20 01 Surreal collection also places a contemporary layer on the modern-day bride silhouette. Separate pieces also offer more versatility to the collection and edges towards a more global outlook for the House of Deola.
