Fall/Winter 2024 Collection


For its Fall/Winter 2024 collection, Sagaboi takes a departure from showcasing in
London to debut in the vibrant atmosphere of Milan. For his latest proffer, Geoff K. Cooper, the brand’s Creative Director, draws inspiration from the infectious energy and rich cultural heritage of Calypso music and its legendary performers, known as Calypsonians. Calypso is a Caribbean musical style which stems from the West African Kaiso and Canboulay music sung by African slaves working on plantations in the 17th Century. Calypso is celebrated for its carefree melodies and often profound social and political commentary, making it a symbol of resistance and cultural pride in the West Indies for the past century. Cooper's childhood fascination with the flamboyant attire of Calypsonians and Calypso album covers from the last century serves as the driving force behind the collection's aesthetic. Drawing upon iconic album covers from the 40s through the 90s, and stage performances of Calypso legends like the Mighty Sparrow, Harry Belafonte, and Calypso Rose, he channels the creativity, confidence, and regality of these cultural torchbearers into Sagaboi's latest offering. “I’ve always been fascinated by the outfits Calypsonians wore since I was a child. The elaborate nature of the womenswear and the sartorial whimsicality of the menswear always stayed with me.” said Cooper.

Fall Winter sees the unveiling of Sagaboi’s womenswear offering, which boasts silhouettes infused with sensual allure and opulent hues. Vibrant shades of mango yellow, hibiscus red, and verdant green are showcased in sequins, lush silks, and reggae fur, evoking a kaleidoscope of textures and colors reminiscent of Calypso's heyday in the 1940s and 50s. Sway skirts, armless
blouses, fringe, and frills pay homage to the era's fashion culture resurgence.

Sagaboi's deep connection to the steel pan and steel pan culture is showcased through
modern design iterations that pay homage to this iconic Caribbean musical instrument. Continuing his exploration of the steel pan as modern design posit and fashion code of Sagaboi, Cooper upped the ante and sent iterations of steel pan infused fashion down the runway. From sequined steel pan vests to quilted
bomber jackets (nodding to streetwear), Cooper elevates steel pan-inspired fashion with a contemporary edge. The highlights though sit squarely in womenswear: standout pieces include steel pan dresses, skirts, and bras that
captivate with their innovative designs and cultural significance. In the realm of
collaboration, Sagaboi once again astounds with its dynamic partnership with
the Ukrainian accessories brand, ÈTAPE. This time, they unveiled a masterpiece:
a round bag that pays homage to the iconic steel pan, pulsating with hues of
red, white, lilac, and blue. “The steel pan is the only musical instrument to have been designed in the Caribbean (specifically in Trinidad and Tobago); ingenuity that came out of struggle and was a staple accompaniment with Calypso music. We connect with the struggle of Ukranians with the current conflict and
felt the steel pan bag an apt creative expression.”said Cooper. But the brilliance doesn't stop there.
