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.
