Summer is finally here and so is our most awaited collection. The idea for the Color Couture Collection was birthed from our Artisan Abroad Program. We travelled nearly 6,000 miles to Sierra Leone and partnered with local artisan Mr. Selu who specializes in tie-dye and batik. With his expertise and our creative vision, we created magic just in time for the mid summer heat. This idea has also further sparked the Artisan Abroad Program where we find a consistent means for creating opportunity and empowering artists in developing nations. This gives them a platform to showcase their skill sets to the world as well as the opportunity to generate income for their hard work. We have documented the entire process, so take a moment to watch the video and meet Mr. Selu himself.
Below is a preview of some of the hottest items in the limited edition clothing line. Get them while they are hot and check out all of the styles here.
Star and Stripes – A cross-culture of Afro-American heritage with a tie-dye/streetwear fusion representing American pride with its red, white and blue stars and stripes . Take on the summer with style and pride. The tie-dye pattern is called the “Diamond”.
Hippie Streets - We’re bringing back the 60s hippie movement with a little flair of contemporary street style in this orange, purple and green selection. With bold and bright hues, this tee undeniably stands out. What’s not to love about it?
The Bandana Tee – This green and orange tee says it all. Summer has arrived, bring on the heat, the festivals and the backyard BBQs. And oh, did we mention, you’re getting a two for one deal with the bandana pattern hanging over your shoulders?
Summer Flow – Let it flow, let it flow with this orange and purple crop. This is the perfect top for that pool party you’ve been talking about all summer! Let it flow, baby!
Bulls-Eye – The circles resemble the bulls eye, hence the name. With this red and orange tee, you’re also getting a two in one deal: a bandana and a tee. There’s no better way to check off boxes on your summer must-have trends list.
The Rokel – Named after one the largest rivers in Sierra Leone, the design resembles a river flow. It’s okay to show some skin so why not do it in style with these “line” fitted crop tops. Choose either black and white or teal and white, whichever suits your style!
