Stand close to your nature and respect your inner self.

A homage to Jamaican diaspora

Due to their sustainable fabrics and ethic choices in manufacturing their apparel. Bound Amsterdam founders Sheila Lopes Alfonso and Maras Rejaän Maras, presented their 2017 autumn and winter men’s wear collection in collaboration with Cavemen. This resulted in an exquisite collection and documentary.

Apart from the Jamaican tunes accompanying the show, serving as a tribute to the influence of Jamaican diaspora in 1970 London the collection is full of other references to Jamaican subcultures. Formal blazers, suspenders and high-necked collars appear on the catwalk, but also blazers combined with loose fitting items and sturdy shoes and socks. The collection has some interesting contrasts. Even more surprising is the fact Bound Amsterdam’s looks are both timeless, minimalistic and innovative. So, even though the collection had a predominant neutral colour palette, including beige, off-white, moss green, grey, black and white, it definitely left an impression.
