'Retro & Modern African Style' With Randmas

Emerging label Randmas mixes retro 60s wardrobe with modern African style.

Anglo-Nigerian label Randmas (Retro AND Modern African Style) adds an African touch to 60s-inspired wardrobe. The newly formed label consists of two sub-branches: Randmas Geometrics for dresses and Bila Beela for male & female luxury accessories. The brand plays really well with the geometric prints, patterns and textures — what we love the most is their lookbook that brings you straight into Randmas' fun universe.
