The Alara x BkM Collaboration, launched in honor of the Africa Fashion Exhibit at Brooklyn Museum, is a capsule collection that celebrates the sartorial journey from Lagos to Kings County. Designed through cross-continental conversations with both teams, the pieces echo the energy of Brooklyn with laid back totes, tees and caps - while celebrating the lexicon of the diaspora with graphic designs that showcases popular Pidgeon English terms used in the culture. Artwork is by South African design studio, Hoick, that visualized the energetic expressions of the continent from a reverent and minimalist lens.
