This collection preserves the masculine simplicity of the Tuareg traditions. The women’s wear collection explores innovative tailoring through sculptural jackets, whilst contrasting this with the drape, the intricate detailing and lose, easy feel of the traditional Tuareg aesthetic. A hand drawn print has been created uniquely for this collection. The graphic etching usually used on the traditional Tuareg silver jewellery, has been blown up into large, hand drawn motifs, and printed onto sheer fabrics. The whole feeling is of a modern expression of an ancient art. For the first time, the brand showcased men’s wear.

ATTITUDE: Refined nomadic.
WE CRIED FOR: The layering, oh lord the layering was so on point. Pulled together with exquisite accessories and rope belts. We had tears in our eyes
FABRICATION/ BITS OF CLOTH: Cottons, silks, anything natural and lightweight to wear in summer. We saw a couple of lilac prints. Simple, good quality fabrication- easy as that.
DID IT REPRESENT AFRICA?: mille collines created a warm desert feel, pops of life in orange and blue really gave the collection a touch of African flavor without one shwe shwe print. YES”
