The collection celebrates the Eyo – masquerades that come out to escort the soul of a departed Lagos King and to usher in a new king during the riotous Lagos Nigerian Festival. Gozi celebrates this Nigerian tradition and introduces the culture of the Eyo to an international audience through this collection.
DYNAMIC & FLUID
The Ode to Eyo collection mirrors the activity and fluidity of the costumed Eyo dancers. Linen and cotton in playful hues of blue, green and grey are textured on a relaxed silhouette. Patterned chiffon hangs on jackets or is softly layered onto trousers and shirts to create a dynamic wardrobe.
