Caven Etomi has shared a new summer collection of hair accessories inspired by the traditional headdresses worn by Suri children of Ethiopia’s Omo Valley. The vibrant offerings from the Lagos-based luxury streetwear brand include citrus headdresses and hair clips (available in orange, lemon, and lime) in addition to floral crowns woven from chrysanthemumsspider daisies and African violets. “The Suri people engage in body paintings, elaborate head dresses and inserted lip plates as a way to enhance their beauty,” Caven Etomi said in an e-mail. “We have reinterpreted this traditional head dress, giving it a modern spin by creating unique crowns, embellished with floral and fruit combinations, to celebrate and embody the spirit of this striking cultural group.”
