Agric Chic


Shall we call this agro chic, 'gric chic, or what?
From sketches I drew around New Years Day 2011

Men should wear man-shorts. Absolutely.

Return the didi (overhand weaving) and kiko (with thread).

We really need ventilation in our architecture.

and then there's all the cool things we can copy from Fulani, Yoruba, and Nigerian agrarian dress in general...

midriffs and gauze coveralls from the Fulani

staying cool in the heat with light fabric, airy styles, and raffia hats...

liking the singlet, embracing the wrapper...

This is clothing for the agrochic.
