It has a relaxed fit that you can cinch with the tie belt and playful frill trims at the cuffs. Style it with the coordinating skirt or your favorite jeans.

Mauritania

Niuku

Mauritanian designer Kadiata Diallo’s work is an expression of paradoxical ideas. A Niuku collection spans gender expression with ease, presenting feminine dresses alongside masculine suit-inspired separates with a coherent confidence. Converging the utility of streetwear with the statement appeal of a strong print, the label is primed to slot into a contemporary wardrobe and can be styled to accommodate various dress codes. Diallo taps into the traditional techniques, most recently for fabric dying, of her local communities of artisans, preserving them for the modern generation.
