The Wana Sambo Holiday 2016 collection is the Wana Sambo Woman’ tailored wardrobe. “ I feel like I know my customer now, what she wants from me, how she likes to dress, and the fact that she is constantly evolving just as the brand is.” – Wana Sambo.
Since launch of the Wana Sambo Flagship Store in April 2015, the ready-to-wear designer has focused on following her creative instincts and now, she’s more confident and bold in her designs for the Wana Sambo brand which now includes a pair of extremely comfortable sandals, the “Wana Sambo Holiday flats” made with soft leather in two colors; White and Navy Blue.
The Wana Sambo Woman is strong, sexy and exotic. This means she’s interested in how her look makes her feel, and she knows that dressing right, as is the mantra at Wana Sambo, affords her the confidence of being a #WanaSamboWoman.
“I thought, if she was traveling for a few months and already owns all the pieces in our previous collections, what would be lacking? You all would agree, its work chic pieces an shoes! Hence the birth of the Holiday Collection” – Wana Sambo
We chose to work with Nigerian Actress & TV darling, Damilola Adegbite Attoh because she’s such a wonderful, young, talented woman. She represents the Wana Sambo Woman so well as she is a young mom and wife who is works hard and is a force to be reckoned with in the Nigerian Movie Industry. We absolutely love Dami!
We worked on pieces for different body types, making this collection relatable to every woman. We expect everyone to have a different answer when they are asked; “which is your favorite look?”. There should be no one look, but a spectrum of equally valid looks for many of us to feel like ourselves in.
With an array of looks ranging from the Box Blouse and fitted pants, to the crepe chiffon tunic shirt, merino wool maroon funnel sleeves midi dress and pleated peplum set, there is no shortage of ‘a favorite look’ for every woman.
