SS2023 Capsule

Release 027 · Jun — 2022

The imagery for Gravalot’s Spring/Summer 2023 capsule collection takes place on the blank canvas wall of a foreign dream, against the backdrop of a course paradise that embodies home. The collection continues Gravalot’s tradition of developing silhouettes and garments from under-appreciated deadstock materials typically found in local stores and markets, with an emphasis on breathable, woven, natural textiles.
Cuban collar shirts, tailored shorts, wide and split hem trousers populate the capsule while a mix of cotton lace and wool provide the choice of wear for warm days and cool nights.
Shot in Lagos Nigeria during West Africa’s rainy season, heavier “Big Boy” jackets are worn open and without tops, with a cropped buttonless open blazer pushing the boundary of creating men’s dresswear for such an environment.
SS2023 Capsule was shot on Wednesday, 15th June 2022 at 22 Beach House, Ilashe, Lagos Nigeria. Debuting at Paris Fashion Week® Men's Spring/Summer 2023.
