Loza Maléombho Keeps Surprising Us!

Browse through Ivorian designer Loza Maleombho Spring/Summer 14 designs, sure to be upcoming fashion trends.

Produced in a small village outside of Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, Loza Maléombho's designs and fabrics are carefully crafted with aesthetics and durability in mind. Maléombho is a special talent. She keeps surprising us after delivering three stunning and unique collections, all different from one another. This time around, she delivers a strong S/S 14 collection with bold statements. Maléombho knows how to marvelously bring together tradional African techniques — she's Ivorian — with a real modern twist. She always provides well-structured pieces and for this collection, there is a sense of vintage inspiration. The styling is part of the statement, you wouldn't necessarily match these garments or pieces together, however they all pair-up really well! If you want to talk about it, tweet #pretapoundo
