Tanzanian designer- Kerry Glanfield recently launches her label’s (Nyumbani Designs) Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection. This collection exhibits all sorts of glam from the yellow and print’ vibe to the hint of traditional African Prints. We absolutely love this collection! All the designs in this collections screams SUMMER from top to bottom.
The Yellow Spaces lookbook was styled by Christine Mhando- founder and designer of Chichia London and photographed by OseeGrecaSinare. From buttoned down prints, dresses, shorts to dress shirts and bikinis, you are very well prepared for a ‘beachful’ and sunny summer!
Nyumbani design is a lifestyle and home ware range inspired by the beauty and colours of the Swahili coast. Founded by a fashion production and development specialist from the Cayman Islands in 2012, the label is a colourful amalgamation of her homes in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and East-Africa. Graduating with a first-class honors degree from the University of the West of England, Bristol in 2005, Kerry Glanfield gained invaluable experience working for high-end fashion designers in London.
The label’s signature encapsulates eye-catching African colours with hand-carved locally sourced wood. The jewellery range experiments with a variety of indigenous trees whereby each piece is sculpted by hand from different sections of wood, making each piece slightly different and unique in colour, ensuring that no two pieces are the same.
Currently stocked in boutiques across Tanzania, Kenya, Japan, Australia, USA and by the highly acclaimed concept store Darkroom in London, nyumbani design is rapidly becoming recognized for it’s innovative blend of culture and design.
Nyumbani design believes in creating simple yet distinctively desirable pieces that are handcrafted and shaped by skilled artisans throughout Tanzania. Dedicated to design, these playful signature pieces are deliciously collectible.
