Joining them to model the first look are Isamaya Ffrench and Oko Ebombo, Ismaya is a make-up artist based in London and part of the London-based collective, Theo Adams Company, who create unique large-scale theatrical productions, film, events, photography and sound work. Oko Ebombo is a musician and performance artist based in Paris, and is most well known as the front man of the band 19.
The pieces include funky tiger print jersey roll neck tops and matching high-waist leggings, paired with logo-bearing long black leather gloves, to create an overall look that you probably would not see anywhere else.
