‘Feroce et Calme’ by Mariam Afolabi

The Algaia label introduces a new and debut collection by the talented Mariam Afolabi who is a London based Nigerian designer. The new collection is titled ‘Feroce et Calme’ which is French for Fierce and Calm. The designer admits she has been inspired by a Marilyn Monroe quote which goes  ”I don’t mind living in a man’s world, so long as I can be a woman in it.”  Each piece in her collection bears an aspect which makes the name Feroce et Calme very apt. The feminine pieces showcase calmness in their maxi lengths but their sheer and see-through aspect add fierceness. And what is fierce about the menswear? Well, apart from the male model (forgive my trespasses), Mariam’s use tribal and ethnic references is pure ferocious. There is both strength and vulnerability highlighted in each piece. What are your thoughts?



Hope you enjoyed Mariam’s debut collection.
