This collection is called ´Eteni’ meaning Balance in Bafaw, a language spoken in Cameroon, West Africa.
‘Balance’ because the world has been going through so many changes following the advent of Covid-19. During the lockdown periods we dug deep to find balance which would ultimately make the brand resilient at a time when many small businesses found it difficult to survive. Balance is depicted through the use of both bright and sombre color palettes and the references to nature throughout the collection from animal prints and tones to cloud like silhouettes.
The collection is an ode to the cycle of life, full of ups and downs but still worth living!
