Afrofuturism explores the developing intersection of African culture with technology, and so Daily Paper references this via “investigating and eliminating the notion of borders” in a collection which “deftly blends the past, the future, technology and liberation.”
By combining traditional suiting with forward-thinking aesthetical approaches, such as using unconventional fabrics and design details, Daily Paper has released a FW19 collection of elevated staples that further develops its eclectic identity. Standout pieces from the collection include a relaxed two-piece suit, which features a tonal incorporated belt into the trouser design and tonal buttons on the blazer. Other bold pieces such as a green snakeskin belted trench coat with matching trousers, a tie-dye workwear-inspired two-piece with 3M detailing and a double-breasted checkered grey suit featuring Daily Paper taping continue the label’s retro-futuristic aesthetic.
Take a look at the outer space-indebted campaign in the gallery above and shop Daily Paper’s first drop of its FW19 collection at its global outposts and on dailypaperclothing.com.
