Bags First Collection
Inspired by traditional African prints adding a more modern and cosmopolitan twist, Wan Kiamy brings together attitude and heritage to the first collection of bags. Reliving the traditional Ankara and the emblematic Thinker silhouette among others, the brand redefines the idea of applying a significant part of their ethnicity and heritage to their luxurious designs.
The bags are all hand crafted with the noblest materials enhancing the purity of the leather and new printed techniques in contrast with a color palette merely extracted from the African sense.
In regards of design, the highlight goes to two carry-all bags, the Tote Bag and Backpacks both finished with delicate touches bringing a more refined look.
“My intention was to revive all the cultural heritage we have and apply it to my designs in a more contemporary and modern way. Color and leather, playing with these elements inspired me to create this capsule collection” – Says Welwitschia.
