Bantu clan season showcased their SS23 collection, themed “NTU” earlier this year.
the Lagos based “discrete luxury” brand
named the collection after the Igbo word for ashes.
powered by reveal Lagos, the out door runway show
was done in solidarity to the Nigerian creative youth
at a time when the brunt feeling of the cash scarcity was being felt.
the SS23 runway show took place on custom street,
a major street in marina, Lagos island.
home to the Central bank of Nigeria and the Nigerian stock Exchange.
with this collection, the brand was trying to paint a powerful image
of a renewed energy and force within a collective spirit.
Each piece off our SS23 collection themed “NTU”
is created to annunciate a reflective moment
on a pivotal transition for @bcszn_ng as a brand.
continue to view the look-book for the “NTU” collection.
for this collection, the brand explored techniques like hand-knitted crotchet
beaded and pearled garments
bold embroidered statement pieces
and also other sustainable methods to design.
all in all the collection is a bold statement
and an ode to the mystery of life.
