EKI reveals their latest SS20 Collection 'Nostalgic'

Our signature soft silks and chiffons take you on a visually stunning journey through African nature, culture and history. Combined with our delicate, sophisticated and flowing silhouettes, an EKI garment is a must-have for any wardrobe.
This latest collection is named ‘Nostalgic’ as the designer looked to her roots for inspiration.
During the creation stage for this collection, she found inspiration in objects that symbolized music and movement. Through exploring the rich history of Africa, she was quite taken with the calabash musical instrument and its importance in African culture. Referencing the sensual shape of the calabash and its melodic, mellow and earthy rhythms, she created prints that are bold and feminine.
The designer has created a design narrative that invokes the feelings of joy, freedom and sensuality associated with the rhythmic sounds of the calabash. As a result, this collection allows the wearer to celebrate history in a modern, fresh and high fashion way.
