For London-based label LABRUM, the illustration of West African culture through clothing is of utmost importance. While staying in tune with this core value, the label exhibits a discussion on movement as art for the Fall/Winter 2022 season.

Titled “Poetics Of Movement,” the new collection is inspired by the nature of human survival and seeks to discuss the universal necessity of movement. Whether it be moving across the globe or throughout culture, founder and creative director Foday Dumbuya seeks to showcase the harmonious creative beauty of movement/migration. Washed in shades of tangerine orange, ocean green, dandelion yellow, slate, black and more, the collection features a tailoring-focused aesthetic. Double-breasted blazers, wool overcoats, pinstripe suits and more are elevated by both sculptural design notes and eye-catching prints. The collection is also brought to life via a range of fabrics that were developed by artisans in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

The attention to West African heritage is visualized on denim jackets and Aishatu dresses, which include screen prints of hand-drawn and hand-embroidered Nomali figures from Sierra Leon’s Mende and Kissi tribes. As longstanding works of art, these figures are believed to have once resembled chiefs and symbolize protection and good fortune. Additionally, Dumbuya’s new collection is inspired by Jacob Lawrence’s The Migration Series and museum archives to showcase the power of movement within the African diaspora.

Take a look at the collection in the gallery above that will be available later this year.
