Tata Naka AW17 at London Fashion Week

 Using decoration and fashion as a vehicle of self-expression, the AW17 collection places the practice of tribal body paint into functional prints

punctuated with wild flower-inspired accessories and colourful tartans.

 Fully sequined draped scarves are also based on patterns pioneered by African waxed prints,

 while silk jacquard fabric is inspired by commemorative cloth from the late 1960s.

The palette also anchors itself within nature, with volcanic rock tones sitting comfortably alongside mineral pigments and flashes of colour.

Striped knitted looks also continue the trend, with various different ribs and African-inspired badges and emblems.

 Tata Naka has included footwear within the creative output, with animal-print pony skin slippers that anchor the collection as an ode to nature.
