Happy Africa Day style revolutionists! We found the perfect way to celebrate this special day with an Afrocentric collection.
Kenya based luxury lifestyle brand, Mille Collines recently released its Autumn/Winter 2016 collection dubbed ‘Curio|City’. It was showcased at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Joburg 2016.
The label which seeks to celebrate the African woman who juggles work and family, and who has a passion for her community and uses her strength for change, features tailored suits, refined silhouettes, 3D beading, turbans, and elegant evening wear reflecting her many sides in a burst of print and colour and grounded in the muted tones of Africa’s landscape.
Like her, the designs have many layers and this collection combines traditional craftsmanship with unexpected materials – sunglasses are made from cow’s horn and wood!
‘Curio|City’ is about unity, sisterhood, finding yourself and saying, “This is me”.
