    Namsa Leuba: Bauhda

Woah! Award-winning photographer Namsa Leuba for COMME des GARÇONS

Posted by Liv Siddall,

We love Namsa Leuba. She provided one of the best pages in our Annual 2012, and there’s simply no one else that makes photographs like her – she has the ability to create tropical portals into strange visions of contemporary ancient history. She’s recently finished BAUHDA, a COMME des GARÇONS special photo shoot for i-D magazine and it. Is. Brilliant.

In an interview on the magazine’s website, Namsa says of the project: “It’s a series that came from African inspiration, from the Bauhaus and Dada shapes and geometrical structures. I like to associate fashion, culture, and the cloth itself to my projects, and have an intuitive and free direction. COMME des GARÇONS is Avant-Garde, dynamic in the curves, the volumes… the unconventional inspires me.”

So great. See this beautiful collaboration in the flesh in the latest copy of i-D.
