Dakar City Of Birds by Selly Raby Kane

The collection imagines an eclectic wardrobe where birds and sea creatures, wool and basin, melt to create an androgynous, playful, colourful and world inspired wardrobe. Kimonos are embellished with classic quilted wax prints, mixed with shrimps and parrots while sweaters are patched in a Senegalese bayefall style. This collection joyfully explores the inner thirst for experimentation and diversity.
