I get a lot of emails from designers that want to share their collection. But this email from, Chinedu Ukabam, head designer of Chinedesign, really excited me. His fall/winter collection titled TheBravingRitual is quite frankly the bomb!
Based in Toronto, Canada, Chinedu took his inspiration “from the warrior spirit it often requires to face and conquer the sometimes harsh winters of the Great White North”. The collection mixes leather, wax print, Scottish tartan wool and indigo-dyed bogolan fabrics from Mali. This mix is what makes the creations from Chinedesign so unique and innovative. The jacket just looks haute and amazing, the shirt dress cool, stylish and trendy. Have I mentioned that I could imagine wearing every single piece? How do you like the collection?
The lucky ones who live in Toronto: Chinedesign is hosting a Supafrik pop-up event this Sunday, the 21st of September, from 1 pm – 7 pm. Location:
TAC Art/Work Gallery, 568 Richmond Street West, Toronto.
