OUT OF AFRICA HOLT RENFREW LAUNCHES ITS SECOND UNCRATE PROJECT.
For spring/summer 2015, Holt Renfrew’s H Project—the in-store boutique featuring goods that give back—has transformed into Uncrate Africa, a colourful collection of clothing, accessories, homedecor items and more from the diverse cultures of the continent. (Think beaded Maasai handbags and bold brass jewellery.) The project also includes exclusive designs from Stella Jean and DanniJo, and the proceeds benefit a variety of initiatives in developing communities. What’s not to love?
“I was looking at horticulture—the obsessive study of all things botanical— and then the idea of becoming lost in a jungle. I love the idea of something so conservative becoming completely undone.” – Canadian-born, London-based designer Erdem on the inspiration behind his lush and lavish spring/
summer 2015 collection
