Awale Studio’s newesy collection “La bonne école” (good school) is a master class in quality. Boasting 100% of their materials and craft from Africa, the brand’s purpose is to “highlight on the international scene a creativity, an heritage, some skills, and a quality level” of the continent, and their latest fashions do just that.
Exhibiting at Who’s Next and Première Classe Paris from January 19th to 22th, we’ve got an exclusive look at the collection’s lookbook, shot with analog camera by Louis-Philippe de Gagoue.
“One of our fabrics is made from 100 % natural cotton grown-up in Khorogo, north Côte d’Ivoire,” explains founder and creative director Jad Fardon. “Traditionally cultivated, it is hand-spun by women of the village, then handwoven by men.”
Awade means “love one another” in dida, one of the many ethnic groups on the ivory coast. Take a look at some of our favorites from the collection below!
