Senegalese brand Tongoro Studio has unveiled its new collection #TongoroTribe Summer19.
The brand has carved a niche for itself, creating some of the most desirable pieces from the African continent and becoming a favourite of Beyoncé, Naomi Campbell and other international stars.
The shoot for collection which is also in celebration of ten years of its existence, is set against the newly opened Black Rock Senegal – an art residency built by renowned Nigerian- American artist Kehinde Wiley.
Tongoro’s #TongoroTribe Summer19 campaign is an ode to African culture(s), creativity and pride.
According to a statement from the brand:
“I love the idea of building something that is bigger than me and that resonates with so many differently, and the idea of the tribe reflects just that: it is all about finding each other and coming together, stronger. We’re building a brand, an African story, a global community, and a very unique tribe, and I wanted this series to make people a feel proud to be a part of that,” Sarah Diouf said.
