#SoHip | Rock Monochromatic with an Afro Edge!

July 31, 2014 MissJackee 0 Comments

To many people in and out of the continent, Africa represents rich and vibrant colors. But black and white (and red) are recurring colors with great meaning throughout Africa. Both colors symbolize spirituality in different ways. While white may signify purification and healing, black refers to strength and energy.

In the fashion world, black and white coupled with ethnic patterns have become very popular. There are many cool African/afro-centric pieces to rock that look too!

British fashion brand, specializing in African-inspired fashion Ohema Ohene’s latest collection “OH! Printex Collection ” in collaboration with Printex Fabric is a monochromatic fashion heaven. There are also other beautiful B&W pieces out there you could grab for a reasonable price. I’m sure your closet has some stylish black and white items too. Here are some looks that you could buy or just rework as it pleases you. Also, find further below some celebs Afro-centric monochromatic styles for inspiration.

Bonne Nouvelle ! La team Afroziky est finalement bien avancée dans son projet d’installation à Douala, Cameroun.


Nous vous présentons SHOWROOM by Afroziky. Notre objectif est de faire de cet espace un lieu d'exposition, de promotion et de vente, destiné à la mise en valeur exclusive de nos différentes créations. Nous voulons vous procurer une variété d’articles exclusifs à production limité dans l’art de l’artisanat dans le but de promouvoir l’individualisme et la culture neo-panafricaine. Dans un monde engouffré dans le générique même la créativité se noie à travers la poursuite de la tendance. Nous voulons briser cette glace et vous donner l’opportunité de définir qui vous êtes sans pression. La route est longue mais nous sommes engagés dans cette cause et voulons que vous soyez des nôtres dans cette aventure !
