East Of West – AW 15/16

Colour Story: Contrasts of White and Black, Grey and Silver, Yellow and Gold;

Inspired by parallels between the designer’s youth and the American film Calamity Jane. 1950’s western, that chronicles a young Doris Day who embraces the duality of a masculinity and femininity, first as a ‘tomboy’ and then as a woman in pursuit of love.

The collection has strong western themes, evoking fringed hems, lapels and boxy cuts. The collection also embraces the ‘feminine’ art of crochet, the final frontier of truly bespoke clothing with hand crocheted lattice dresses, flared pants and jackets, with traditional doily patterns exaggerated for effect with the use of acrylic, rayon and cotton yarns. Its colours and fabrics emphasize this study of contrasts, using twine traditionally prevalent in masculine environments to craft the feminine crocheted pieces. Fringed tops, dresses, jackets and pants in feather light silk and cotton create androgynous silhouettes that both celebrate and satirize the manly stereotypes Westerns have become associated with.

Ultra femininity and hyper masculinity contrast and complement each other and ultimately, birth a truly liberated woman, East of West.

Anago Bags in Accra again

We are thrilled to be hosting the launch of AnaGo Bags latest collection in Accra this weekend! For those of you who know them, you already you know why… for those who don’t… well, you’re in for a treat!

A little background… Anago bags designer IIhem is Algerian, born in Niger, raised in Mali and Benin, and now calls Togo her home. Inspired by her mother’s fashion career, she created Anango, a collection of unique, contemporary clutch bags. From her wax print bags to the beautifully embroided, to the art canvas bags, it is obvious that her multi cultural background influences her creations. IIhem uses cotton, silk and even kente woven in Togo. The clutch bags are usually bright in appearance with complex designs, making plain outfit days that much more exciting. Their understated ethnicity, the unexpected marriage of colors and the fact each hand made bag is one of a kind are just some of the reasons to fall in love with them.

IIhem’s great relationship with local weavers, dyers, artists etc. allows her to comfortably create without boarders. For her latest collection, she hired the very talented E.O. Dartey who adapted his series of “Concerned Women” paintings for use on these unique bags.

Come and join us this Saturday from 4pm to meet the designer, the artist and these beautiful creations!
