Senegalese Designer Selly Raby Kane's 'Alien Cartoon'

This is about fashion designer Selly Raby Kane and her Fall/Winter 14 Collection — "Alien Cartoon".

We've been following Senegalese designer Selly Raby Kane since her first capsule collection. A great example of the new generation of hip designers, she reinvents herself and brings a new wave of trends with every season. Working in sphere where fashion and art collide, Kane excels in creating original designs and fusing pop art, fashion and garment combinations. This Alien Cartoon collection displays eccentricity and resolute contemporary lines, while still remaining true to the original design that made it a success. The lookbook was perfectly conceptualized and photographed by Omar Victor Diop. (some photographs by Jean-Baptiste Joire). In our dreams SRK would be workshopping with the likes of Jean-Paul Gaultier and Andy Warhol. For now, Kane delivers something new in what's definitely one of our favorite F/W 14 collections. Scroll through our gallery above. If you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #sellyrabykane.
