This menswear collection encapsulates the African identity through clever use of traditional fabrics such as adire and igala.
Gravalot’s latest collection is the definition of afro-casual. The clothes are relaxed separates designed for comfort, ease and to capture the African identity through the use of texture and fabrics. Take a look at Gravalot’s stunning ‘Child Of The Sun’ collection.
According to the statement following the release:
What it means to be African is to be categorised into a special bracket of human civilisation that is summed up all too readily by the same stories and narrow perspectives, both inside and outside the continent. There needs to be a new language, a mode of speaking that depicts more accurately the various guises in which African cultures take shape
The collection celebrates Africanism through the use of colours, textures and fabrics. The designer plays with Ankara, traditional igala fabrics and adire to achieve shorts, pants, shirts and matching sets within an afro contemporary theme.
