ZASHADU for ALARA, AW16

by Zainab Ashadu


In collaboration with Alara, the breathtakingly beautiful new concept store designed by David Adjaye in Lagos, we launched our new Limited Edition collection, “Queen of the Land”

Referencing the reverence attached to the West African Python, also known as "Queen of the land" in northern Edo state, Nigeria; This collection employs indigenous exotic skins to explore the relationship between danger and superstition, between darkness and vibrance, between myth and tradition.
All skins used in this collection are hand dyed and glazed using traditional West African methods.

Available exclusively at Alara, Lagos.
