NEW CAMPAGIAN MAXIVIVE PRESENTS: LEYQON WET 2015

I first Met Designer Babatunde Oyeyemi {MAXIVIVE} at  Fashion Focus for Lagos Design Fashion Week 2014. The first thing I thought about his collection was “risqué” but then I love “risqué” and I was honoured to have styled his collection for the show. Since meeting him, I have watched his career closely and I have to say, he never ceases to surprise me. He has a natural flair and love for prints and fabrics but the most amazing thing is that he actually creates his own prints which is fantastic. MAXIVIVE thinks very much outside the box and his technical and creative use of fabric is what attracts me to his work.

MAXIVIVE has finally released his new collection for SS15 called LEYQON WET where he takes inspiration from the Nigerian Rainy season and uses Technical Rubber Fabrics to create fantastic pieces that are just perfect for the season. I love the look and feel of urban designs from trench coats to bomber jackets. MAXIVIVE definitely is on top of his game and I can’t wait to see more from this designer. With his work featured on One Nigerian Boy, as well as GQ South Africa, MAXIVIVE is definitely a Nigerian designer to watch.

Without further ado, I present to you MAXIVIVE LEYQON WET SS15 COLLECTION:

LEYQON WET 2015

LEYQON

He had a ”Name”
So do we.
Never thought of it.
So did I.
We searched for ”Name”
The whole time through.
Life took him out,
Then, right I knew –
LEYQON, it is.

Wet 2015

Unarguably, there are only two recognised seasons in Nigeria, the wet season and the dry season. It’s only of our believe that these seasons should be directly referenced to in its region, be it in the fashion, movie, music or even the corporate industry.

Maxivive as a brand has thus decided to create original clothing to suit the geographical conditions of the people in its direct market and also embrace the creations that have been bestowed upon the region.
