Kai Collective – Swim collection Launch
Kai Collective is a London-based brand created by Fisayo Longe.

Bianca Saunders X Browns – The Tourist
LVMH Prize finalist Bianca Saunders has teamed up with fashion boutique Browns Fashion for Focus SS21 Capsule Collection The Tourist. In line with Saunder’s distinctive style the menswear collection references her West Indian heritage with pieces like the Jamaican Mom print shirt and tailored cargo trousers that incorporate streetwear references in a silhouette that reminds me of the style of men from the Windrush generation in the 40’s and 50’s. And a special mention to the 80’s with the Barlon Leather Trousers. The collection is intentional, strong, and presents covetable pieces such as the Barlon Leather Jacket and Cape Trench Coat.
