STRANGER Boutique, Lagos presents SPRING / SUMMER 2015 EDITORIAL #1 “MYTHOPOESIS” featuring designers PEIR WU, U.MI-1, and IAMISIGO

‘The idea of myth making is something that has interested us at Stranger for a long time. The capacity for human beings to tell stories and imbue mundane or unusual events with greater agency through the use of narrative and myth is something that we believe has a lot of power. We worked with two young artists - Adeju Thompson and Tunde Alara - on this editorial, asking them to develop characters and environments with which to transport our models and the clothing they were wearing to something that transcends the every day.’
