I'm beyond excited + grateful to have the opportunity to Co:Create with Raheem Kieasa, founder of RARE URBAN. Raheem's moniker DARE TO BE RARE is felt in each of his pieces. He believes that your clothes should be a reflection of you. When someone looks at you, they can see you, by what you’re wearing.
Our vision for the “KIMU” - the [U]niversal MUMU, was to blend the Hawaiian + East African cultures + infuse them with our personal style. My style of comfort + functionality, mixed with Raheems style of 'making a bold statement everywhere you go'!
This collection is a reflection of being alive in my dream: To co:create intentional capsule collections, with dope artists from around the world! Each collection is one of TRADITIONS, COLLABORATIONS + CO:CREATIONS.
Proceeds from the collection support the local Mbweni community. We provide jobs to local Fundis (master artisans) along with tangibly giving back, as proceeds from each KIMU go directly to the villages we have adopted that are in need of clothes, roads, building materials, education + soo much more.
We haope you feel ALL the LOVE that went into this dream becoming a reality + We thank you for your support!
