Skaters of Africa

2019

Maison Mbosso’s first collection is inspired by the booming communities of skateboarders in Africa.

'Skaters of Africa’ is a mixture of traditional African garments with contemporary menswear staple pieces. The skateboarding culture inspired a mismatched look through textiles and layering details.

It also inspired the reinterpretation of some traditional African garments as well as the re-appropriation and adaptation of menswear staple pieces.

The aesthetic of this collection is defined by an attention to details, fabrication and prints.

To research this collection, we had the opportunity of backpacking through Ghana (2018) for two weeks. Have a look at our incredible journey and the amazing communities we met here https://www.maisonmbosso.africa/exploration-skatersofafrica .
