Ones to Watch - Orange Culture AW17

Orange Culture presents its AW17 Collection - Pretty

For this collection, Adebayo Oke Lawai, the creative director chose to infer on garments the religion of romance. A sense of romance that can only be given to one's self by one's self.

A story of 'coming of age' teenage boys - the full spectrum of what it means to be young, which encompasses the carelessness of love, the angst of failure and also the delicateness of hurt.

The collection begins with the starting moment a teenage boy realises that hurt is part of the journey too.

'As a Nigerian boy, you are not allowed the freedom to own your own pain, to hurt, even if it is staring you right in the face. it is a deeply rooted patriarchal system that invalidates pain as an essence to maelness. You are required to be a man before you are old enough to realise that being a man is overrated' - Oke Lawai tells.

But there is also a progression into recovery, into a subtle knowledge of self bravery and self love, and these teenage boys being able to find themselves despite some of the worst pains of abuse.

The collection, as it is titled Pretty, shows there is no anger to it, no form of rebellion or self pity, no persisting shadow of victimisation, in some sense it is a collection of rebirths - the moment after, the sense of journey along, despite it all, and the idea of being broken to be beautiful.

New Skincare for Men- STOER

There's a new skincare for men in town, STOER.

STOER  is named after the rocky Scottish peninsula of Stoer where weather conditions change in an instant from a bright breezy day to dark tempestuous storms, and can play havoc to the condition of your skin.
However STOER is not just for the wild Scottish highlands but also can help protect the skin from stressful city living caused by pollution plus irritation caused by shaving.
The superhero ingredients of STOER called Clima 5 have been globally sourced from 4 continents with four very different climates:
Peat Moss - helps keep skin hydrated, plump and even in tone. Inspired by STOER's wild and windy Scottish homeland. 
Barberry Fig - helps sooth, firm, hydrate and combat stressed skin. From cacti found in the arid Mexican desert.
Wakame - helps support collagen production and guard against the skin ravaging effects of pollution. Extracted from Japanese seaweed.
Alpine Stem Cells - helps improve skin's overall elasticity and encourages dermal renewal. Extracted from plants which grow on inhospitable mountainsides.
Baobab leaf Extract - helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. From West Africa.
