Republic of Foreigner debuts 'Echizen'

Aug '11
Republic of Foreigner debuts its Resort 2012 Collection entitled Echizen. The designers use exquisite colours, patterns, and textures to compose creative connections between modern views of romanticism and the natural world.

The result is refreshingly soft, feminine, and whimsical – with sharply tailored jumpsuits and confidence-assured dresses, alongside playful tops, shorts, and trousers.

The Echizen Collection is a dynamic fusion of chic Bohemianism and the natural world. The name of the collection was literally inspired by a beautiful yet invasive species of jellyfish called echizen found in the Pacific Ocean.

The collection represents a mix of gauche and glamour—staying true to the designers' tradition of mixing their easy boho-inspired aesthetic with contemporary African and world culture. Ideas for the collection were derived from vintage photographs of Italian Gondoliers in boater hats, and characters observed in films such as The Chicken Ranch (1970s), West World (1973), Dune (1984), and Giacomo Pucini's opera, La Bohème.

Coupled with these influences, movement, shape, and colour all play a big role in the collection, as do graphic prints, textures, and trimming—all working together to celebrate women, beauty, simplicity, aggression, everyday life, and change.

Founded in 2010, Republic of Foreigner is a Nigerian apparel brand established with the aim of bringing out the spirit of freedom in all the ladies out there! Sisters, Carmen and Selina Sutherland, are the creative forces behind Republic Of Foreigner. Their designs are inspired by folklore, Afrobeat culture, vintage relics, and exude a mutual love of film, art, and design. Operating from their hometown of Lagos, Nigeria, this bohemian inspired fashion duo produce eclectic designs for the modern hippie.
