Of God Body:
An Exploration of Self-Revolution or Spirituality

By: Fela Raymond, Hakeem Adewumi
Models: Waiff, Micah Henley, Jasmine Lewis

With this exploration we celebrate the radical framework of religion and revolution by creating illusions of a powerful people in unanimous union.

In Yoruba culture, Yemaya, Obatala, and Eshu are created beings that dwelled on Earth like you and I. They experienced shortcomings and good fortune and express a wide range of human emotion when confronting us through spiritual mediation. As the Bible serves as a collection of sacred parables and lessons from God to his people, we explore its magical correlation to the many powerful gods of Yorubaland. This portrait series will explore the intimate connections and conversations between: Mother Mary and Yemaya, Obatala and Adam, and divine messengers Eshu and Jesus.

 

Style is informed by a moment in time, and context is captured by presentation.

The Brooklyn Circus/BKc is a menswear brand that finds inspiration in the pages of history books. Everything we make has a story, from the construction of our varsity jackets to the looms where our denim is woven, and we take these elements into consideration when we cultivate our brand. We are here to tell the story of style throughout American history and to emphasize the power of presentation. We want to change the way Americans dress, one iconic silhouette at a time through the 100-Year Plan. Welcome to the circus.
