Kisua has built a brand on capsule collections with emerging African designers -- but with pre-fall 2014, that's all about to change.
Dubbed Kisua Hariri -- which means "edit" in Swahili -- the brand is launching its own line designed by its in-house team. It represents a streamlined, modern approach to effortless dressing. This full range of stylish, affordable pieces celebrates individuality, power and strength.
The Hariri woman is spirited and artistic, loves African prints and demands a wardrobe that allows her to express herself freely -- and that's totally delivered in the new line, which features bright colors and fun patterns.
The inspiration for the new line? Burundi-born, South Africa-based artist Serge Alain Nitegeka whose immersive installations confront migration through an exploration of form and space. That translated into a play between the masculine and feminine, the urban and the organic.
Statement pieces include cocoon coats, full skirts, fitted trouser suits, boxy tops, tomboy jumpsuits and all-enveloping shift dresses, set in a color scheme of cobalt blue, burgundy and forest green offset by beige, cream, navy, black and white.
This exciting new collection is being unveiled today, June 3rd. Check out Kisua Hariri's website and get ready to express yourself with its power pieces.
