The brand Afrikanista founded in 2014 by Aissé N’diaye pays homage to the African generations and more particularly to the sub-Saharan culture in West Africa, this winter the brand decided to associate with Black Square the media of the Afro-Caribbean culture. The collection entitled « Bal Dust » puts Africa in the spotlight with t-shirts and with black and white iconography or expressions from the African pop culture such as « la robeuse», «le sapeur» or «la pagneuse».
Vintage portraits, proverbs, and even epaulets inspired by the Franco-Ivorian comedy released in 1989. It was therefore logical that the two founders team up to deliver a light and colorful collection.
See you from the 2 to the 4 of November at 2 Passage du Chantier in Paris for the the collection pop up store !
