A choice of edgy, bold designs and prints that represent the black culture and vibrant style in a cool, classic, and simultaneously bold way, was missing on our high street retailers, and so the idea for the Chinakwe lifestyle brand was born.
Brand Originator Artist and Designer Caroline Chinakwe has transformed art into something beyond your average, everyday wall decor. It is Chinakwe’s mission to eradicate the gap in the art and design industry for modern, African, lifestyle-based creations, and in doing so, Chinakwe has interlinked those creative ideas inspired by her African culture, with Western style in its UK base.
This capsule line is deliberately in a narrative thread with the art collection 'Colourism': vibrant colours, exotic nature-inspired textures, fearless women; intrinsically woven into their beauty, style, strength and grace run throughout each piece. The collection features apparels made of silk and satin, perfect to wear in any occasion: from casual wear, like co-ord joggers to lush silk two piece lounge wear and the classic Chimono Robe.
All fashion pieces are bespoke and made right here in the UK with local artisans. Each piece is a stand-out, made to order look just for you. Choose a print from the Chinakwe art collection to bring a pop of color and that African inspired-edge to your custom made piece, giving you that sense of uniqueness and exclusivity that will enhance your own personal style, as you add that personal edgy vibe to your wardrobe.
