‘This is the first of a series of designs that will be released under the Stick-Up Collection (season 1). This is Pako by Qome.
Pako (pronounced kpa-ko), is a man who, regardless of the mediocrity around him, holds his head high. His confidence in himself is often interpreted as arrogance and his response to accusations of conceit is a tongue-sticking out taunt .
The concept Pako was born from Nigerian Afrobeat King Fela Anikulapo’s song by the same name. While the general impression of a “pako” is someone hardened from poverty, Fela saw a pako as someone competent, someone who stuck to his strengths and excelled in his chosen field.
