Styling my sweater by Grass_Fields
Last week I was going through Burna Boy’s Instagram (I’m a big fan) and in one of his posts someone asked him what African Giant meant (that is the title of his before last album). And He replied, “African Giant are Africans who are proud of been Africans, who embrace their origins regardless of what that often means.” That answer touched my soul. I understood every word. I live in Europe for 18 years and I love living here, but at the same time Africa lives in me and I’m proud of it.
And this Grasfield sweater reminded me of Burna Boy’s answer. Grasfield is an African clothing brand. Their clothes are made in Cameroon and Nigeria and sold worldwide. What I like most about this brand is the inclusion. It is a brand that despite using African fabrics, it embraces a very mainstream idea of style, making people from various backgrounds identify with the brand. Moreover, Grasfield’s clothes make every woman feel super fabulous, like Me in today’s look (lol).
I combined the sweater with classic pants and a high heel shoes. What is something I do A lot in my looks. I love to combine basic, sporty pieces with more classic pieces. The fusion of different styles, makes the look more personal and authentic. So to make the look more moi (me), I added this vintage hat, et voila!
I hope you have enjoyed the look and do not forget to dream and always strive for the realization of your dreams.
