In her collections, Kenyan designer Katungulu Mwendwa merges traditional artisanal techniques with contemporary silhouettes to achieve a chic, effortless look. Case in point: this Dabassah Kimono Jacket from the FW’22 edit. Crafted from handwoven cotton, it features an open front, concealed roomy pockets, and an asymmetric hem.
