Pearl 11 30 is a fashion brand known for its functional ready-to-wear and tailored pieces that are produced to the highest quality standard.
Inspired by her recent trip to Cotonou in Benin republic, the designer, Ade Yusuf decided to create a collection of workable separates that makes up the perfect day and night look using the local Cotonou wax print fabric.
Minimalism, Youth and Femininity are three words that can adequately sum up the new collection, ‘Le Voyage.’ It can be described as a perfect juxtaposition of modern fashion with an Afrocentric flavour which can either be worn together or individually.
The designer showcased her love for playing with texture by mixing wax print fabric with Chantilly lace, raw silk and chiffon. There’s also an element of vintage vibe to fit the taste of the ideal Pearl 11 30 woman.
