A live performance from the Congolese-Parisian duo Tchegue, set the fiery tone that for sure traveled through the attendees ears. The duo sang in Lingala (Central Africa, Congo) and broke every barrier in the fashion sphere. This type of sound, up until now, was l'inconnu.

Kamara brought a new symbol - the floral motif. It was seen throughout the collection, in partnership with one of his favorite artists Jenny Holzer, that appeared as a reminder of undergoing renewal and on the other hand a response to the American Supreme Court's overturning of Roe vs. Wade.

What also stood out, was the cut-out belly parts that highlights the abortion debate.

Another reference was the anatomy of the human body, emphasized with skeletal graphics. We're excited to see what else Ib Kamara can offer. We're hoping that his new perspective of Off-White really inks the blue print.
