To mark her 10 years anniversary, Andrea Iyamah released its Spring/Summer 2021 collection tagged “Harvest Collection”. The collection itself tells the story of African heritage through sketch, thread and passion. Like many other African traditions and customs, the harvest festival is linked to a thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest. Andrea Iyamah’s SS21 collection is no different, according to the fashion house The Harvest Collection is an ode to the farmer and The One Who sends the rain.
Through out the collection the mélange of olive green, papaya orange, eggplant purple, cocoa brown and coconut white have a commanding position.
Andrea Iyamah in a statement says: HARVEST COLLECTION is a story of the road to abundance. It is a celebratory display of the fulfilment of ‘the work of our hands’….The harvest is the vantage point that shows work as fulfilling, sacred, a gift and an honour. That the ground yields its harvest is a journey of toil, prayer and patience that only the farmer knows too well.”.
