Young menswear luxury brand Atto Tetteh did African fashion proud when they presented a cohesive and progressive collection at the Pent fashion show.The ALOO (WOVEN) SS15 Collection adapts the techniques of weaving and the craftsmanship of the cane weaver into their upscale collection. The suits and shirts have intricate needle work and painstaking details and fashion statement which we fell in love with.The woven factor is noticed particularly in their signature shirt and waistcoat with African print details. Our personal favorites in the collection include a velvet blazer with an Ankara lapel, the short sleeved shirt with patchwork and the polished cotton tunic that weaves the African print into its core fabrics.
ALOO is the indigenous word for weaving in GA, a southern language from Ghana.It’s a wonderfully feat for a young brand that seeks to tell the African story through dapper and compelling clothes to be adjudged one of the very best collection on the night. The collection projects the virtues of the cane weaver which include patience,art, hard-work,industry and most importantly creativity. Atto Tetteh celebrates the African man and his rich culture though the African craftsmen they pick as inspiration.
Atto Tetteh is for the young at heart and the gentleman who is ready to spend on his look in the cosmopolitan 21st century. George Tetteh, the brand’s creative director takes a strong liking and inspiration for french designer Christian Dior.
He loves their brand ads and campaigns. Also he picks Christie Brown as an African brand that is doing very well and a personal favorite. Atto tetteh is the future for all men and in 5 years we’ll be seeing and hearing of them on the international scene. ALOO (WOVEN) SS15 is still in stock. Grab your luxury edition and make a huge fashion statement.
