Caven Etomi's Festive Spring 2015 Tees

Streetwear luxury brand Caven Etomi unveils a festive new batch of tees from their spring 2015 collection.

Caven Etomi has just unveiled some warm and colorful arrivals for their spring 2015 collection. Founded in 2013 by Joan and Doreen Caven and Oseyi Etomi, the label says they make affordable luxury casual-wear inspired by African history, culture and art. Their festive latest batch of unisex shirts, which they call a "tongue-in-cheek take on unique African visuals," includes an African Fashion Dolls tee, a Tropical Beats tee (which our music editor just pointed out features Analog Africa's Afro-Beat Airwaves cover) and a Wax Print Beauty tee in sleeveless and short-sleeve styles. For more from Caven Etomi, see photos from their Geometric Fall/Winter 14/15 Lookbook and the J.D Okhai Ojeikere‘s Hairstyles-inspired collection for their streetwear sub-branch, Kingdom.
