Back in December, we dropped our The Hundreds by Anwar Carrots collaboration. The colorful, energetic collection was designed by our longtime friend Anwar, a renowned creative, entrepreneur, and tastemaker who truly represents the new wave of West Coast streetwear.
Though we shot a lookbook here in LA, what we really wanted was to shoot a lookbook in Nigeria, to be more representative of Anwar’s roots and the Igbo language words on the back of our collaborative shirt (“ADIEU AKU-UDO OTU” is a farewell dedication to the “#1 Chief,” Anwar’s grandfather). More specifically, we thought it’d be amazing to shoot it and feature some skateboarders from the Motherlan crew as models (you may recognize them also from our WAFFLESNCREAM feature).
It took a long time to finally make it happen, but Anwar pulled through, connecting with photographer Danielle Mbonu to shoot our second collaborative lookbook in Lagos, Nigeria, with WAFFLESNCREAM team riders Olaolu and Onyedi.
