Larry Jay’s Autumn/Winter 2019 Collection Is A New Glam Upgrade.

Ghanaian fashion brand Larry Jay has unveiled the lookbook for its Autumn/Winter 2019 collection.


According to the designer:

Being my first time putting together an Autumn Winter collection, I decided to go a bit global. Global in a way that had to do with the kinds of lives lived by people in my immediate surroundings and outside of it. The cuts and selection of fabrics for this collection were inspired by the style and ways of living that reflects their attitudes, habits, tastes, moral standards, socio-economic level, values, etc – a reflection of the past, present or future cultures of these people.
The collection sports slightly thick and heavy cotton brocade which was hand tied and dyed by some local Guinean artisans based in Ghana to very soft and flowy silk and cotton fabrics, fleece, spandex, synthetic fur material, and leather.

This is to show the swings between the diverse ways of clothing and styling amongst the different people in the world, not forgetting my signature material, JUTE which really defines my aesthetic.
I have always wanted the chance to promote locally and ethically handmade fabrics, so I used this opportunity to introduce my first locally handmade tie and dye fabric, championing more indigenous fabric with very little use exotic fabrics this season.
