Loza Maléombho brings a Futuristic Eclectic mix for SS14 – DESIGNER

Loza Maléombho is a brand we have followed for a few years now which offers culturally eclectic garments – with an ethical and social mindset – to an international world of fashionistas. We have liked various details about each collection especially her use of handwoven cloth and so were looking forward to seeing the SS14 collection.

This spring collection is all about futuristic structures in contrast with African traditional techniques. Loza Maléombho uses Kente, muslin, denim, light poplin, recycled plastic and indigo dyed techniques from Africa to create architectural pieces. The colour palette includes rich blues, nudes, oranges with hints of burgundy and purple in a medley of prints.

Loza Maléombho delivers quality and original garments to a confident woman also unafraid to make a statement. With production that takes place in a small vilaage outside of Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire – the atelier has become a place which encourages women, focuses on empowerment and thus helps young women from unfavourable backgrounds. This is obviously reflected in the passion of the designer and the quality of the clothing.
