African-inspired menswear collection (SS13) by TRINE LINDEGAARD

Trine Lindegaard used vibrant and refreshing colours for her spring/summer 2013 collection. The look is sporty, which include very wearable pieces, using bold colours layered over darker palette. The geometric patterns of the ‘kita’, a wonderful and unique West African fabric, not only gives the garments a more graphic and modern look but also raises awareness of the ancient craft. It also promotes the traditional (and almost extinct) fabric as well as the African communities who produce this fantastic textile.
