Bobo Choses’ new AW22 collection Forever Now is all about time. What is time? Who is it? What does it want? Whilst it might prove to be a tricky thing for adults to get to grips with this is definitely not the case for children who have their own way of relating to it. For them, time is flexible, malleable, friendly, and a constant present.
Talking Bobo is a way of being. Non-sensical to adults but a very real and natural way of being for children, where imaginations run wild and reality is turned on its head.
The collection itself is born out of a series of original stories and poems (also available to buy) that eventually come to life in the form of prints and shapes you find in every range from the magical universe of Bobo Choses.
Clothing wise it's been one the most unusual to date, with collections trickling through in multiple drops across almost all brands due to impact on production and distribution during this tumultuous year.
One brand that was already doing things differently (and by their own free will I hasten to add) is Amsterdam based Repose AMS who moved to a refreshingly different approach to selling clothes at the end of 2019, releasing four collections across the year - two main and two capsule, aimed at bucking the trend of selling summer shorts in February and winter coats in July.
