Emerging Nigerian Swimwear brand Kamokini debuts with “Blocks” Collection Campaign! Check it out



Kamokini Blocks Collection Campaign Images - Bellanaija - September2014014

The sexy cut outs & colourful pieces are the features we love best about emerging swimwear brand – Kamokini.

With their debut collection – “Blocks“, they aim to provide a swimwear brand that caters to “what real women expect of a fashionable, affordable and figure complimenting swimsuit“.

The brand was created by Nigerian designer Kambili Ofili-Okonkowo – who started the line 2 years ago when her search for stylish bikinis at high street prices proved futile. Today she has created the Kamokini “Blocks” collection to help fill that void.

The swimsuits are inspired by everything art, music, African culture, Western fashion trends and the female sensuality.

Check out their campaign images below.

      And what has being gay got to do with this? Does being heterosexual grant you an automatic access to them? Unfounded comment. Apparently though, gay men have the most access to beautiful women and the most beautiful men alike. #TakeItOrLeaveIt

    I hope there’s stuff for people who are well endowed. Finding bikini tops that fit are a problem, especially when you’re well endowed but a size 8

    how is this brand providing for the “the african woman”??? we all know that more than half of the african women populace ok narrowing down to nigerian women arent even a size 6 not to talk of size 2 as these models obiviously are. plus just three pieces?????come on thats all there is to the block brand or this is just supposed to tease us.anyway the owner of this label should do her research and expand her productions to actually cover more than just size 2 and 6 sizes…


    September 5, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    Chai so no one on set could tell the girl in the orange swim suit to take it easy with sucking her stomach in? She looks just fine even without all the sucking in smh
