Drawing on nature’s brightest and best, Senegalese designer Selly Raby Kane’s newest collection is a celebration of the world’s birds, which she’s integrated into her pieces in innovative ways.The collection, aptly named Dakar City of Birds, is a delicious catalogue of clothes made up of an array of fabrics, textures and intricate designs of winged and other creatures to create elegant pieces with a fun, street-fashion edge.

According to her statement, Kane wanted to draw on her imagination and make an “eclectic wardrobe where birds and sea creatures, wool and basin, melt to create an androgynous, playful, colourful and world-inspired wardrobe”.

This is one of my favourite collections in recent memory. Kane has married meticulous tailoring that suits the female form with a free-spirited design approach that makes for versatile wear during the day and an electric addition to a formal outfit at night.
