Between the sun-drenched palm leaves and weathered coastline, Amsterdam-based brand Daily Paper have revealed their heritage-inspired Spring/Summer collection titled Future Roots. Celebrating the history and cultural background of Africa through a range of Buba-like fabrics and garments, the collection uses newly-created textiles found through extensive research to create a range that aims to influence the younger generation.
Mostly comprising of Daily Paper’s own lace fabrics, the range sees the fabric sewn on to various pieces, reinterpreting dart-waisted dress, boxy-styled shirting and asymmetrical frilled dresses. Cut from Broderie Anglaise, the lace features empty portrait frames that pay homage to the heroes of the past.
Switching up their colour palette for bright emerald greens, soft beiges and rich yellows for this collection, the brand furthers its sense of heritage as they paint these colours on uniform-inspired checked shirts and pleated skirts – a nod to the classrooms of the 60s and 70s.
