BUY || WEAR: Osei Duro does tribal so well

Suno's designs have really captured my imagination since S/S 09. I have a deep fondness for prints and colors and have been refining my ability to mix and match seemingly conflicting patterns and textures. The tribal print theme continues with Prada's new Foulard silk bags for the summer (so many choices: here, here, and here). The appetite for bold print is certainly whetted, but with prices ranging from $950-$1,200, the wallet hesitates to open.

Prada's Foulard Bags

Luckily, I came across Canadian upstart Osei Duro, an apparels and accessories design company started by Maryanne Mathias and Molly Keogh whose purpose is to design sustainable clothing based on West African textiles. I immediately fell in love with the label's line of tunics (at $105, I swooped one up immediately). The designs are intelligent and gorgeous. I support what Osei Duro is doing and encourage you to take a look - you will certainly be swept up in the printed spirit!
