Fela is indeed a legend. I’m sure the music legend would be proud that he left his mark in this world. He is the inspiration behind the resort 2016 collection of Nigerian fashion and lifestyle brand Kancky . The brand who also has an appreciation for nature names the collection “Road to Kalakuta“.
According to a rep for Kancky, the collection “was influenced by the life and achievements of the late musician, political maverick and human rights activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti.”
The creative team at the label also drew inspiration from the Yoruba cultural heritage, opting for the Adire fabric and combining it with contemporary fabrics including silk, wool and cotton.
The model used for the shoot had her hair traditionally styled in bantu knots. She also had on traditional African bangles and anklet. She brought the whole afrocentric look to the fore.
