Since the 17th century, Amsterdam has shown to be a refuge for social and religious freedom. In that span of time, the Dutch capital has become one of the most multicultural cities in the world, boasting nearly 180 nationalities, including its proud Moroccan and Surinamese heritage. Amsterdam mainstay Patta has collaborated with Andy Wahloo on a new capsule collection that celebrates their shared values and cultures.
Founded by visual artist Hassan Hajjaj, Andy Wahloo, which translates to “I have nothing” in Moroccan dialect, can be defined by the vibrant colors and ornate patterns found across his home nation’s beautiful riads and textiles. “This unique collaboration serves as a bridge between cultures, allowing for a deeper understanding and connection,” wrote a press release.
The capsule will include a number of T-shirts featuring Patta branding and Arabic script, as well as a boxy hooded sweatshirt, reversible bomber jacket, green logo jogging pants and a black cross shoulder bag. Complementing the launch, Patta and Andy Wahloo created a tea, grown in Morocco, which will be released in a limited edition metal box, only available at the brand’s Amsterdam location.
The Patta x Andy Wahloo capsule collection will be available on Wednesday, April 19th at 7am EST online and at the Patta stores in Amsterdam, London and Milan.
