Inspired by the “time-honored tradition of West African studio portraiture” and “the work of Burkinabe artist, Sanlé Sory,” the SS22 Wales Bonner collection is really something special. Looking through the look book one gets a feeling of being transported to Burkina Faso in West Africa.
The razor sharp tailoring is combined with tactile fabrications giving the collection a stylish yet approachable identity. You might catch the details of the intricate stich on a sweater or be seized by the masterful use of color on a dress or a pair of trousers.
