3.PARADIS has enlisted Nigerian photographer Stephen Tayo to shoot its Fall/Winter 2019 campaign in Lagos. Art direction was composed by the label’s founder and creative director Emeric Tchatchoua, and together they pay tribute to Africa with a series of photographs capturing 3.PARADIS’ clothing shot against an unfiltered city backdrop.
The FW19 offering combines elements of tailoring, utilitarian streetwear and a relaxed take on formal clothing, serving up standout pieces such as a color-splashed faux fur coat. Elsewhere, Tayo captures a contradicting shot of a model in his underwear while wearing the “*SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE*” scarf, as well as a model wrapped up in just his green checkered coat.
Other notable shots include the pair of models wearing 3.PARADIS’ take on the traditional suit blazer — with one double-breasted piece that features the label’s signature dollar bill motif, and the other a single-breasted blazer featuring a split design and another dollar bill.
Various currency notes are also printed in washed-out colors on a button-up jacket, and the sun-splashed city of Lagos is noted in a series of shirts and a roll-neck sweater. Rounding off the eclectic collection is a trio of utilitarian corduroy pants.
Take a look at the Stephen Tayo-shot 3.PARADIS FW19 campaign in the gallery above, and shop the entire “CALAVIÑAS” collection when it drops online and at select global stockists.
