Ituen Basi launches the much anticipated ‘TWENTY7’ Collection in a special installation on Saturday 18th August, paying homage to Fela and his 27 Wives.
Ituen Basi was recently commissioned to produce costumes for the critically acclaimed musical “Fela and the Kalakuta Queens” which after extensive research resulted in an expressive set of costumes for all the lead characters in the show.
The musical and whole creative process inspired the latest collection that was showcased in South Africa Fashion Week earlier this year.
Playful tassels, rich vibrant color palette, exquisite fabric manipulation, contemporary silhouettes and intricate ‘embroideries are just a few details that are part of the collection codes.
Ankara, aso-oke, lace, crepe, tulle and jersey are key fabrics used in the collection which includes duster coats, cigarette and palazzo pants, full skirts, fitted tops and body-con dresses.
The installation and collection will be available at Temple Muse from August 18th.
