Nigerian-German hip-hop/soul artist Nneka poses for Lagos, Nigeria-based fashion label MINKU Bags and its Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection . Entitled Folklorist Reloaded , the collection expands on the theme of the Minku AW2011 collection — “the power of folklorists to unveil old ways and help us imagine new possibilities through their colourful folktales.”
Named after prominent folklorists, the bags explore color through Minku ‘s trademark of combining Spanish-sourced leathers on the exteriors, and fabrics like aso-oke (hand loomed cloth woven by the Yoruba people of south west Nigeria) on the bag interiors.
Local customers can purchase Minku bags exclusively at Nike Center for the Arts in Lekki Lagos and items are also available online at shop.minkudesign.com (with worldwide shipping).
Nneka ‘s atest release, Soul is Heavy , is available for purchase .
