EKI reveals their latest SS21 Collection 'The Reset'
Taken aback by the devastating Australian wildfires, I was inspired to narrate a story that protects nature and encourages us to reset our lifestyles.
We played with rich shades of emerald green, symbolising nature in its pristine form, and introducing layers of rusty brown lifeless leaves, highlighting the destructure, that is a threat to humanity if we refuse to reset. The introduction of this new green leaf print was coupled with a past story telling of our divine blue underwater sea world.
The force of nature and its preservation is woven into a lot of our designs and it is precisely here, where most of our prints are birthed, always with an African interpretation.
The RESET collection is a beautiful discourse that guides you to a place of tranquility allowing you to revert back to basics. It is a consciously minimalistic collection using remnants and up-cycled pieces, focusing more on comfort as a reflection of the current state of global affairs.
With the RESET we are punctuating life to appreciate who we are and what we are surrounded by and tell this story with luxurious silks that naturally glide off the body.
