This season, Minki presented their ebullient SS19 collection, divergently inspired by Lorenzo Vitturi’s book, ‘Money Must Be Made.’ The anticipated photobook sees images of his journey through the chaotic and exuberant Nigerian Balogun market on Lagos Island. The book was integrated into the collection to reflect an ideal and desirable world through exaggeration and creativity.
Minki took the images from the book and produced a ready to wear collection, inspired by the chaotic-ness and bold vibrant tones. The collection was extremely versatile, consisting of jumpsuits, gowns, blouses, raincoats and playful shorts. Gorgeous tones bought such energy to the show, with egg yellow, powder blue, green, reds, cream and white tones all integrated into brilliant patterns.
