Here at Vibe Vixen, we’re huge fans of the eclectic, afrocentric designs of Brooklyn-based line Boxing Kitten. With celeb fans including Solange Knowles, Rihanna & Estelle, Boxing Kitten has established itself as a premiere line with an authentic feel that brings us back to the motherland, in silhouettes that are figure flattering yet cutting edge. Staying true to her roots, designer Maya Lake took inspiration from her signature mix of afro-inspired kente prints while mixing old-school silhouettes with a twist.
Maya tells us, “…this season while maintaining my Ethnic Rockabilly aesthetic it was also important to diversify my materials and I loved mixing in the velvets with the Ankara.”
From midi skirts to mesh maxis and 70′s style trousers, Boxing Kitten merges old and new for a funky fresh Fall 2011.
