Each piece from the collection was treated to a unique process called Adire which is practiced by the Yorubas in the Southwest region of Nigeria. Before the garments are dyed, an artist will hand paint patterns using a cassava starch or wax base that allows for patterns to be made on the un-dyed sections of the fabric.
The capsule consists of colorful two-pieces, T-shirts and patchwork items. Standout pieces include the aforementioned patchwork looks, such as the stripe and polka dot-adorned navy blazer and short combination with green accents. Other notable mentions include the bold graphic T-shirts which see large wildflower prints, as well as the collections signature bucket hat.
