Written by FDM

After a hiatus of several years, Moroccan artist and designer, Yassine Morabite, comes back with the release of two capsule collections of which inspiration was drawn from his imagination and environment.

According to Plurielle, who first announced his comeback, the first collection dubbed Amazigh Power refers to the different struggles and challenges that Amazigh identity has to face to fight against oblivion and denial. And No Signal , the second, tells a story of a sporty outfit belonging to a dream country equally craved by young and old people.

To sketch his first collection, Yassine Morabite drew inspiration from the legends and the heroes who filled his childhood dreams,  such as Goldorak or the Power Rangers. “I saw and I imagined the heroes of these series donning traditional Arab, Amazigh, African clothes … I found pleasure  bringing  this virtual world that I watched on television, to my reality, my culture.” Yassine told Plurielle.
