  • Description

    Bakuba Catwalk was an interactive video installation featuring a virtual fashion collection created by Chinedu Ukabam of Chinedesign for the Royal Ontario Museum in October 2014. Conceived as an "open-source" fashion show, the audience was invited to insert themselves into the action by walking the runway or instagramming photos from the press pit. Dating back to the 1600s, Bakuba cloth are embroidered raffia textiles that originate from the Congo. Admired and coveted around the world for their geometric brilliance and abstract improvisation, Bakuba cloth (also known as Kasai velvet) serve as the main inspiration for the digital print patterns that Chinedu designed for this virtual collection. A capsule collection was designed exclusively for the show and this garment is part of a new "expansion" collection released December 2016.

    "The wound is the place where the Light enters you." - Rumi

    The short sleeved Bakuba Soul Window Sweatshirt is made from a heavyweight fleeced cotton that is soft to the touch. The circular cutout on the outer layer reveals a second inner layer of lattice patterned cutouts underneath. Baggy sleeves. Elastic waistband.

    Note: due to the delicate nature of the cuts, dry cleaning is recommended over hand-wash or machine.

    Size Chart: Pick one size down for a loose fit. A small fits like a regular medium.
