Designer Spotlight: DIARRABLU

We at Zuvaa have spent numerous hours recruiting diverse designers who live throughout the continent. We’ve had the opportunity to work with amazing textile designers who are creating capsule collections that rival more luxury brands, but also are building fashion companies in their communities.  These young designers are connected to their identities, which reflects on their colorful creations. Diarra Busso, is a bright gem from Dakar, Senegal. Whose new “Infinity” collection embodies luxury styling but it’s made for the everyday working woman.

The DIARRABLU SWIM 2017 collection titled “INFINITY”, explores yet again Diarra’s fascination with the concept of dreams and their multiplicative effect on one’s imagination. With a particular passion for Mathematics, the designer celebrates the notion of the infinite by turning 6 basic swimsuits and  4 overtops into at least 25 distinct swimwear looks by using combinatorics.

To highlight the importance of geometry in her work,  Diarra includes a line of three-piece swimsuits with Greek-letter names featuring Ankara or fishnet over tops on geometric bikinis.

Diarra also releases her first shoe designs in this collection. She revisits the Senegalese leather sandals but adds 8m of straps that go all the way up to your thighs in yellow mustard, orange red and blue. These infinity sandals are also very practical with the option of changing the straps and turning one pair of shoes into an infinite number.

Ultimately, INFINITY pays tribute to all women, their extensive strength, their unbounded capacity to adapt and transform and ultimately, their infinite dimension.

If you amazed as we are you can now shop the new DIARRABLU “Infinity” Collection for $105-$115 for a limited time here.
