 I stumble upon Ashanti Brazil line a few days ago on facebook and I could not wait to share  it with you. This would make my french fashinionitas happy especially the ones looking to add a little sizzle to their wardrobe. Ashanti Brazil is a young brand that brings together African and Brazilian culture expressed through a fun and flirty summer wear brand. Ashanti is the African tribe that designer Annabel Kwateng originates from (Ghana). After long vacations in Brazil, she was inspired by the beautiful nature, the passionate culture, and the mesmerizing colors of the country. Ashanti Brazil uses beautiful African prints to create clothes that are fun, flirtatious and exotic. Now living on the French Riviera, Annabel brings her brand of Tribal Chic with a Brazilian flavor to the region.

Since the label launched not long ago they don't have a lot of web presence. This collection is a very simple one and can definitely see some of  ciaafrique fav celebs  such as Rihanna, and Solange Knowles rocking a few of the pieces. Ashanti Brazil definitely used some of the tips I shared with you here. They have a great and interactive website and the first lookbook looks great.  Check out the full collection here

So what do you think of Ashanti Brazil ? Is it one of your favorite African fashion houses? Would you wear their designs?


Thank you all for taking the time to comment.
