Tribal-inspired pieces have been a recurring fashion trend for seasons, but we must all remember where they originated: Africa. The continent is known for its vibrant culture and style, though its designers aren’t showcased nearly enough. One such designer is Adama Ndiaye, born in Senegal and raised in Paris with her collection, Adama Paris.
When you combine the power of African style with the high-fashion sensibility that is inherent to Paris, the result is stunning and that is exactly the aesthetic of this brand. Adama combines urban street style with her roots and for Spring 2011, the collection features all the necessities for a woman on-the-go who wants to look stylish yet loves to get out and travel. “My main inspirations are the big cities. I am a city girl, I love the impressive buildings and concrete. I love to travel and any ‘concrete jungle’ where living becomes a source of inspiration. My goal was and continues to be to share with women around the world a modern concept of fashion without borders. “
Fitting in with this season’s trends are printed bathing suits perfect for travel to any warm weather locale, rompers of all persuasions in bright shades, bandeau tops for the woman who likes to show some skin, strapless cocktail dresses for all your most important events and so much more.
Adama Paris is definitely on our radar. Visit www.adama-paris.com for more information and see the next collection when it previews at Dakar Fashion Week from July 5th to July 10th.
