Multidisciplinary design duo Art Comes First has recently unveiled images from its themed Fall/Winter 2017 lookbook. Fits revolve around the age-old Billism subculture — a band of coming-of-age outlaws assembled in the ‘50s-era Congo to upheave political views of the time — with designs artistically mimicking the movement.

Sharply cut blazers team up with button-down shirts, fitted trousers and two-tone creeper silhouettes, with double-dipped denim ensembles and multi-zipped outerwear portraying statement looks. Very much in line with Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh’s core aesthetics, many featured looks take on complimentary accessories, such as bowler hats, teardrop fedoras and an assemblage of jewelry pieces.
