ABY Style: My Miry by Sara Coulibaly Launches New Collection

By Posted on 0 810

Sara Coulibaly has a thing for feet, this Paris based Ivorian entrepreneur has a passion for making women’s feet look glamorous and sexy in a simple and elegant way. Over one year ago since she rebranded as “My Miry” which literally translates as “my thoughts” in the Malinké dialect, the brand has transformed itself into an affordable yet exclusive premium footwear and accessories brand crafted from the drawing board of Sara’s imagination, inspired by her own passions and brought to life in a studio in the South of Spain which enlists Carolina Herrera as a client.

 

Since her first pair of shoes, Sara Coulibaly has magnified through every pair the beauty of fusing materials, the resourcefulness of craftsmanship and the subtle yet eclectic contrast of colours which is seen in the new collection named “Heaven”

One of them is the creative brain and magic hands behind Umba. Umba is an African textile jewelry and accessory line using only high quality african wax and ankara wax fabrics which I stumbled upon on Facebook.

‘Feroce et Calme’ by Mariam Afolabi

The Algaia label introduces a new and debut collection by the talented Mariam Afolabi who is a London based Nigerian designer. The new collection is titled ‘Feroce et Calme’ which is French for Fierce and Calm. The designer admits she has been inspired by a Marilyn Monroe quote which goes  ”I don’t mind living in a man’s world, so long as I can be a woman in it.”  Each piece in her collection bears an aspect which makes the name Feroce et Calme very apt. The feminine pieces showcase calmness in their maxi lengths but their sheer and see-through aspect add fierceness. And what is fierce about the menswear? Well, apart from the male model (forgive my trespasses), Mariam’s use tribal and ethnic references is pure ferocious. There is both strength and vulnerability highlighted in each piece. What are your thoughts?
