Must See! Ivorian Designer Loza Maléombho’s Tribal Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Published

Loza Maléombho Spring Summer 2016 Collection - BellaNaija - October 2015004

We are loving the tribal vibe from Ivorian fashion designer, Loza Maleombho!

For Spring/Summer 2016, she was inspired by the traditions of her country, the ‘Zaouli’ dancers and masquerades.

She says: “Just like A/W15, this collection explores the culture of Zaouli dancers from the Guro tribe of Northern Côte d’Ivoire. With fringe trimmings and a mask figure peaking in a very stylized fashion within the structures of some of the garments, this collection is sensual in the sense that it is inspired by ‘Djela Lou Zaouli’, a ‘Guro’ princess who was re-known for her desiring beauty and for dancing very graciously. The silhouettes are more feminine than they have ever been in past collections.

We love the bold and colourful pieces, the edgy cut-outs and the masquerade peeking in the background gives it a whimsical appeal. See the full collection below:

    Sanity in the fashion industry is like been contented with the political state of Nigeria. Her diversity with unexpected cuts and the inspiration from which the collection is created is enough to tell that she is not going for the conventional. This for me is a unique tribal Couture, well tailored and even feminine…very dynamic.

    Her ish is dope & thought provoking. PERIOD. A true artist knows this. She & Azede Jean Pierre are my currently my favorite Black designers because they know their stuff. If a collection not primed for a naija wedding, Nigerians will hate it. Not everything is fit & flare yo..
