This is the concluding chapter in a trilogy of collections by Wales Bonner revealing threads between Britain and the Caribbean. Black Sunlight illuminates a world of Caribbean Thought and Black British intellectualism.

The collection presents a continued partnership between Wales Bonner and adidas Originals, offering a timeless wardrobe of Collegiate leisurewear, and low profile sneakers in luxurious leathers and playful nylon, team kit for a gifted community.

The light of Black Sunlight, produced in collaboration with Jamaican filmmaker Jeano Edwards, becomes a film memory of the collection. Captured between Port Antonio and Kingston in Jamaica and London’s Goodenough College, this exploration of transcendent, intersectional intellect reverberates with the ambient sounds of musician Laraaji – resonating the rich complication of diasporic sound and creation.
