Harmattan 20/21, a White White Maxivive White collection is inspired by a personal story of Papa Oyeyemi, the creative director of Maxivive. Characterized by his mid-adolescence Junior secondary school adventures, acting as the foundation for the collection, the title was gained from the definition of his wayward style within the structure of the schooling system. 

“Truancy” is based on the personal experience of Papa Oyeyemi which he uses arbitrarily in putting the collection together. Various elements, from his experience, are pinned to the mood board, expressive colours on a test of purity, binding silhouette, and commercially viable garment studies were generally infused. A simple design technique was employed in keying the inspiration into the clothing with contrast, repetition, and harmony widely used while laying fabrics out into pieces.

Shapes of fabrics becoming various trouser forms, top styles, and jackets cut for a shared body, fitted in quirky details for richness within a form. Studies for various commercial styles were greatly infused, the apparent Maxivive cult followers’ aesthetics are visible in each historic designed piece.
