Joining international fashion brands such as Stella McCartney, Lanvin, Isabel Marant and Gucci etc; KISUA for 8 will be retailed on the world’s leading online site for fashion, lifestyle and art: YOOX.com. This is a first in cross-continental design collaborations - the result; a new global aesthetic fusing African textures and techniques with Italy’s timeless elegance.
This exclusive collaboration between KISUA, the leading African fashion e-commerce platform, and 8, the Italian go-to brand for contemporary wardrobe essentials draws on the DNA of both labels. Each piece seamlessly fuses KISUA’s vibrant print signature and minimal silhouettes with 8’s timeless aesthetic to create 14 unique, feminine and easy to wear pieces.
KISUA for 8 draws its inspiration from the bold and fearless spirit of the KISUA woman. Underpinned by a strong monochrome palette, this collection awakens the imagination with surprise citrus pops and playful geometric prints breathing new energy into the ever growing African fashion trend.
The entire KISUA for 8 collection was designed and made in South Africa using locally sourced fabrics and indigenous crafting techniques. This approach is in accordance with KISUA’s trade-not-aid brand philosophy, which creates jobs and fosters sustainable development on the continent. The KISUA design and manufacturing team worked with local artisans and production houses to ensure the collection maintains the high quality standards that both KISUA and 8 are known for.
KISUA for 8 is fashion with a soul.
