The Funky Grooves collection draws from Vlisco‘s proud history, inspired by global urban culture and couture craftsmanship. It’s a collection of contrasts, with edgy street wear influences reinterpreted through a lens of pure glamour. The new collection is a melting pot of ideas, using new colours to update Vlisco’s heritage designs, and classic Vlisco techniques to create new looks.

Raw, geometric lines, traditional wrap shapes, bold metallic studs and edgy industrial hues come together to create a modern vibe. The collection’s colours range from earthy browns, brassy golds and bronzes, to brick reds and shocking pinks, and fresh acid blues and greens. It all comes together in the Funky Grooves collection, for a look that is bold, punky and original, yet feminine and effortlessly easy to wear.

The new Funky Grooves fabrics will also form part of a fashion & accessories collection, which will be available at selected Vlisco boutiques from August 2012.

For a sec there I thought the designs were by an African (Nigerian) designer only to find out the company is European. I love the designs and the patterns and especially the models. BN comments sometimes have a special way of irritating me sometimes.

Yeah I think they are based in the Netherlands. At times it does sadden me that the true owners are not from African origin but I still appreciate their work.
It's really refreshing and very innovative. At times i do get a bit concerned about their choice of models tho. Seems like they have not eaten in a while but apart from that their campaigns are always on point!

Models are supposed to be thin and tall, besides women like this in Naija are called "lepa" at least when I was there (2003)

Well I really don't know about the supposed to. I am not attacking your views so please don't get me wrong but i do believe that there is a differen between looking healthily slim and thin. These girls, except they were photoshopped look like as if they went on a starving spree for days before the shoot.

One thing i do like about vlisco too is that they have the tendencies of using much darker complexioned ladies. It really makes their entire campaign so so different.
