Folasade: 1953 Pop-up Shop

You were first introduced to Folasade through our interview with her for How I Wear My Crown where we talked about her store and mission to preserve her father’s memory.

Serving as the creative director for her own wares, Folasade brings to us this fantastic look book showcasing some of her handmade designs. Shot by Brooklyn-based photographer Dex R. Jones, popular for his breath-taking work with black bodies.

"A Summer Deferred"
I stepped into the path of a sunset in June hoping that the hottest lips in the heavens would always be present to kiss me goodnight. But summer has seemingly hidden her warmth for the past two months; leaving my face estranged to her love. Absconding to regions outside of New York City to make a mockery of our desolate beaches. I pray that her solar winds unite us in August to bronze my brown skin and fill my mouth with grievances on the days where she flirts with the heights of the thermometer. I dream for summer to be as wild and free as I know her to be. #poemsbyjk

There’s nothing wrong with grief.

There’s nothing wrong with fear.

There’s nothing wrong with pain.

Just don’t allow them to keep you in bondage, unable to grasp the happiness that is rightfully yours.

What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America?

While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we examine the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his father’s affiliation with the movement and the makings of a black superhero.

This montage sets the climate for an upcoming Sunday Kinfolk story.

Featuring Isaac Hayes, Walk On By
