The Duo: 

We are two Melbourne sisters behind the new label, Collective Closets. African born and Melbourne raised, our label is a harmonious marriage between our two cultures, the chic deconstructed but restrained silhouettes of Melbourne and the wild, untamed, and deregulated aesthetics of modern African fashion drawing inspiration from the city of Nairobi where a new African fashion renaissance is fast emerging.

It may sound like an unlikely pairing, but the monochromatic tones and hues that form the fundamental foundation of the subtle sophistication of Melbourne style provide the perfect backbone and appropriate restrain for the traditional tribal weaving, batik prints, and loud and bold earthy colours of the African continent.

Made in Melbourne.
