Casablanca’s Day of Victory Collection Is An Ode To Nigeria and Afrofuturism

A flashback to mid-twentieth century Nigeria, Cabalanca visits the golden age of African cinema across its Day of Victory collection.

Piecing together stark, evocative imagery, Jordan Hemingway’s lens blurs the boundaries between fantasy and reality, contrasting the label’s signature sunset hues against muted, vintage tones. Each shot pinpoints a moment of action, flitting between scenes of romance, combat and adventure, further elevated through the movement direction of dancer and choreographer, Meshac Henry. Across, the collection offers a wash of gradient prints and patterns, experimenting with silks, ruffles and relaxed, sportswear-inspired silhouettes.

Founded in 2018 by French-Moroccan founder Charaf Tajer, Casablanca finds a balance between elegance and hype. Lounging by poolsides and sipping on daiquiris, the label captures the essence of luxury and escapism, unique for its laid-back, retro aesthetic. Inviting a number of forward-thinking creatives and models to showcase each collection, the label continues to grow and carve its own path within high fashion.

Illustrating an ode to Afrofuturism, Casablanca conjures timelessness with its Day of Victory Collection.

The SS24 collection is available for purchase via casablancaparis.com
