Lookbook: Demure by ‘Denike’s AW18 Collection Inspired By The Wave Sandstone Monolith

By Njideka Akabogu

Titled The Wave Collection, Demure by Denike‘s AW18 offering draws inspiration from the vibrant, almost unnatural hues of the Wave Sandstone Formation.

According to the label, creative director, Adenike Adegboye‘s major inspiration for the new collection comes “from the fragility of the Wave Sandstone formation and the parallels it has with fashion as a culture, design as a process, and the often overlooked reliability that must define construction. She acknowledges the fragility of the sandstone formations, built over centuries through years of routine and layering of otherwise unremarkable sediments.

She replicates that sentiment through ruched tulle, layered at the hem of a spaghetti dress. She mirrors its striations and marries it with her love Adire, creating striped motifs that speak to their clientele’s rejection of order and embrace of controlled chaos.

Neutral hues of muted browns and sallow oranges are juxtaposed against defiant purples and unsoiled whites, whilst the season’s ideas are materialized in the softness of fabrics; tulle, chiffon, silk and twine as a homage to the softness of the formation’s present incarnation, and how it is in a perpetual state of transfiguration.
