Phunk Afrique recently went through a rebranding phase with the brand emerging as an eponymous label, Funke Adepoju and have released their first lookbook under the moniker for their SS15 Collection, Fifth Avenue, which was shown at Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2014.

 

Drawing inspiration from a trip New York, the designer says “Everyone has a New York story – that city that takes you in and makes you see things through a clearer lens and allows you to exist in your most creative element. You find inspirations everywhere – the subway, waiting to flag a yellow taxi, in line to buy a snack. It’s such a vibrant place that fills you up with so much excitement.”

The collection keeps the labels wearability while using more luxurious fabrics. Essentially simple and feminine silhouettes in print and embellished fabrics are made more interesting by modified hems and peplums.

The name change is as a result of this shift away from the informal model formerly in place where client would bring in fabrics to the label for designs to suit their taste, the designer explains, “The brand has stepped into the realm of more luxurious and sophisticated fabrics, to mature cuts and aesthetics and overall, more intricate detailing.”
