This past Wednesday, legendary indie fashion label Xuly Bët showed their Summer/Spring 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week. The ready-to-wear collection, made by Malian fashion designer Lamine Badian Kouyaté, was created with traditional wax-printed fabrics, head wraps, and more. The brightly colored collection mixed denim jackets with chunky platforms, athletic two-piece sets, jumpsuits, mixed patterns and more. Very cool collection, check it out below.
