The young label De La Sébure from Burkina Faso conquers the fashion scenery with men suits in African print. His fancy and extravagant colors speak for themselves. With De La Sébure the man may show up in bright colors.

Also shown are the designs of Nana K. Brenu from Ghana who combines bright colors and bold prints with modern minimalistic design in his label 1981. As is one of the main principal philosophies of 1981, the notion of contrast is evident throughout the collection in how he approached the finishing of the garments.

The handmade Afroshoes from Kenya give every outfit the perfect colour touch. The label was found in 2012 by Emo Eugene. Made of ankara fabric, at the same time they are stylish and trendy. Itʼs an afrolook for cosmopolitans.
