Nigerian sustainable fashion brand Cute-Saint has unveiled its Autumn/Winter 2021 Collection tagged Isegun (Victory).
Inspired by the modern-day Nigerian; strong-willed, unrelenting, unprejudiced; an impeding force against tyranny.
The brand’s latest offering is in collaboration with three local fashion brands Roda Statement Leatherwork, Floyd Cardigan and Purple Stripes, to promote black-owned businesses and joint ventures.
According to the statement of the brand:
It is a very dynamic collection that exudes and embodies the drive found in a fighter that goes against the grain. The one that rises after a fall; despite falling apart, the one that strives to elevate and rise above, navigates through its nemesis with attitude and luminous energy.
Each piece in the basket is a reflection of their emotions, moods, and experiences which were represented through strong looks created with neutral colours, moods, shapes, and contrasting waves of line designs to give a feeling of triumph and lightness to the garments.
Batik is a major ingredient in this collection utilizing locally spun Funtua cotton, and wool; which underlines the brand preservation and dedication, with particular attention to sustainability, ethical practices and its attendant effect on the contemporary society and as well as deliver a modern glamour and timeless sophistication.
