Tina Lobondi SS21 Collection brings back its ready to wear line inspired by the African continent and its masks culture. The capsule collection pays exceptional attention to details and finish, classic and chic designs.
Each fabric item has a distinctive feature – a tribal African mask. Traditional African masks play an important role in certain traditional African rituals and ceremonies. Most African countries hold deep and complex beliefs around masking ceremonies. Masks are one of the elements of great African art that have most evidently influenced European and Western art in general. These African masks are usually shaped after a human face or some animal’s muzzle, albeit rendered in a sometimes highly abstract form.
The existence of African masks can be traced as far back as the Stone Age – in a press release statement by the brand, though in contemporary Africa, masks are no longer as commonly used for tribal ceremonies though they still represent one of the continent’s most vibrant contributions to the arts all over the world. .
Tina Lobondi’s SS21 collection is inspired by Africa, every creation and print made is a representation of the perfect association between African heritage and French couture.
