In search of the supreme Lightning Bird, Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs ventures into the forest with his winter collection highlighting Afro sports luxe sensibility. Here’s a peak at how to dress a Warrior with Fundudzi Man AW16 marking The Gathering of the Warrior.
THE DESIGN: Abstract renderings of spears inform the collection, slashed on t-shirts and bleeding on knits while geometric markings characterize this modern African tribe. Traditional fabrics, with naïve repeat prints, are the canvas for modern silhouettes while still grounded in the land of the ancients.
SHOP FUNDUDZI WARRIOR: available at Space Man at Rosebank@The Zone in Johannesburg and Gateway in Umhlanga. For more details, visit www.facebook.com/fundudzibycraigjacobs or @Fundudzi on Instagram and Twitter www.fundudzi.com
