According to a statement from the brand:
Spathodea Campanulata is commonly known as the fountain tree, flame-of-the-forest, or Pichkari.
It is a tree that grows between 7–25 meters tall and is native to African tropical dry forests. It is a large upright tree with glossy deep green pinnate leaves and glorious orange scarlet flowers.
This season, Selly Raby Kane explores West African vegetation and creates a conversation between the Pichkari flower flame and aquatic quilted textures. From juxtaposed gathered belts to slogans referring to urban Dakar, the pichkari collection is a quest of balance between maximalism and lightness, between extravagance and causality.
Pichkari serves as a metaphor for power, invasion, and placid passion.
