Bucket hat: Brick Lane Vintage Market
Trainers: Mind Charity find
Necklace: Omolola Jewellery
It's cold but I'm bringing sunshine and a summer throwback with this look, shot late September in Puglia, Italy. I've been a fan of Ghanaian owned sustainable luxury fashion company that embodies a carefree & unique nature. Their gorgeous use of locally produced rich fabrics, handwoven into casual everyday wear...thus this stunning two-piece was born. It was made using fugu from the Upper West Region of Ghana and is part of the brands' sustainably sourced & produced collection. Fugu is handwoven from scratch by women artisans in Ghana's northern region. I was drawn to the red, yellow and green underlined with the black stripes, a solid statement hinting at the Ghanaian flag. I love seeing African brands pull from traditional luxury to create modern easy to wear pieces like this set. Threaded Tribes is available to shop at Afrikea which hosts 100s of other African owned sustainable and ethical brands.
I styled this with a velvet bucket hat from Bricklame Vintage Market, a pair of black sneakers I found at a Mind Charity shop and one of my fave necklaces from Omolola Jewellery. Walking the streets of Pugliano a Mara in this was pure joy.
