A few weeks back I popped in at the Missibaba COLOUR BLOCK Collection launch but didn’t get around to sharing some of the gorgeous, glamorous pictures until now…
This sixties inspired capsule collection uses autumnal inspired leathers sourced on South American travels and adds a pop of retro glamour to the dreary winter months.
Missibaba designer Chloe Townsend and creative partner Lizel Strydom have been inspired to create a celebration of colour.
The use of on-trend dark navy leather to frame contrasting colours allows them to shine individually with a gold geometric edge. The introduction of exotic textures including patent, sheepskin, snake and crackled leather give the collection’s clean aesthetic an alluring edge.
The collection boasts two new bag styles and a new jewellery piece alongside iconic Missibaba styles.
The San Telmo Hold All – a unisex handheld carrier perfect for day or night. The bag is made of rich walnut leather with handles and trims in Crazy Horse tan – a vegetable tan leather with
hardwearing qualities that ages beautifully. The style is also available with the option of
different colours and textures in the middle panel.
The Feria Clutch – a true festival of colour with the added benefit of thoughtful practicality. Credit card slots, room for essentials, a back zip pocket for valuables and quick, easy to open fastening make this piece a wardrobe necessity. The bag can be worn as a handheld clutch or over the shoulder as a small sling.
The Daisy Chain – a double-sided neckpiece available in a variety of bold colourways with the reverse in navy vegetable tan. Attached to a long brass chain, the statement piece can be
easily adjusted by the wearer to fit their desired length
The campaign features Africa’s Next Top Model runner up Opeyemi, the campaign brings the collection’s retro Autumnal colour palette to life in an eye-catching and slightly offbeat way.
