Daily Paper Draws Upon Afrofuturism for Fall/Winter 2019

Daily Paper‘s Fall/Winter 2019 collection taps into the increasingly popular early ’00s trend. Focusing their attention particularly on Afrofuturism, the collection is comprised of technical suits, blue and green snake print items, checked patterns, and tie-dye prints. The campaign itself was even shot on a martian like set with sand-like surface and disco-balls haphazardly rolling around. Daily Paper’s intent with this collection was a call to nostalgic futurism — a concept that was innovative then but is rather an indicator of the past now. The brand also kept loyal to their African culture offering a bit of a dandy-vibe with formal, yet funky suiting. Check out our selects from the collection above.
