Fée Uhssi's 'Wrap Me Up' Collection

Fée Uhssi presents their 'Wrap Me Up' Collection, a mix between African textiles and European vintage fabrics.

French/Nigerian label Fée Uhssi's latest Wrap Me Up collection highlights their high-quality fabrics sourced in Africa and in Europe. The brand's concept is simple: a single piece can be worn in many ways. This makes Fée Uhssi's garments completely versatile and unique. The label's website explains, "the pieces in this collection are designed with clever reversible, convertible, multi-way systems creating many different style options. They are created to complement the basics we all have in our wardrobe; with various vibrant pieces that are easy to mix and match, bringing the 'wow' effect to a simple pair of jeans, black leggings, white shirt, little black dress or any style that fits your look." The beautiful prints that the garments are constructed from will definitely inspire wearers to be their own designer.
