Daily Paper joins forces with David Alabo on a capsule collection
As part of the Spring Summer 2020 collection, Daily Paper commissioned Ghanian visual artist David Alabo on a limited-edition capsule collection. The collaborative project features the creatives' visual design on a range of t-shirts, each highlighting an Afro-Surrealistic tarot card providing insight and guidance through symbolism and spiritual wisdom.
Just like Daily Paper, Alabo creates futuristic worlds that highlight Africa and its diaspora. Using 3-dimensional abstract works, photography and mixed media pieces as primary mediums, the young artist is committed to gaining an understanding of how best to showcase and critique African society through the lens of the strange & fantastical.
"Daily Paper is dedicated to promoting African culture by honoring the past and its influence on their vision of the future. They push the boundaries and challenge the perception of Africa in the fashion world which is what I aim to achieve in the art world too. It just makes sense that we work together and inspire each other" – David Alabo
