feature: womenswear line kréyol’s stunning new collection – ‘karabela’

July 1, 2015

Take a look at the Karabela collection, the spring/summer line from fashion house Kréyol. Led by designer Joelle Jean-Fontaine, Kréyol’s mission is to “enlighten, educate and empower by utilizing fashion to increase awareness of social causes affecting people domestically and abroad”. The new collection, a collaboration with Nineteenth Amendment (the online platform for independent designers), includes “ruffled detailed dresses with bouffant sleeves, to full a-line skirts, and feminine flirty blouses” – inspired by the traditional quadrille dress (worn in folk dance celebrations in the Caribbean and South America). Check out some images from the lookbook below and find more here.
