Awale Studio's New Ivorian-Made Collection Is Giving Us the Warmth We Need This Winter

Check out the latest from the Ivorian fashion brand.

Awale Studio returns with their latest cultivated and crafted in Côte d'Ivoire collection just in time for winter slaying.


The Ivorian-based fashion house has been on our radar since they dropped their summer collection back in July. This time around they've exchanged bright and breezy tie-dye designs for warmer tailored looks that'll make fresh additions to any winter wardrobe with their new collection "La Bonne Ecole."

The philosophy behind their clothing is simple:

"Awale studio tells stories. Stories about girls and boys, clothes and everyday life."

"As always, I worked on basic cuts. Simple and very wearable designs, building an effortless and comfortable collection with a twist of chic, says Awale creator Jad Fardon. "All shot with an analog camera. Here, round collars, pleats and straight cuts go alongside t-shirts, sweaters, hoodies, and double belts, in reference to those teenagers who want to show-up in their underwear."

Check out the full "La Bonne Ecole" collection below.
