The luxury Ghanian streetwear fashion brand Complex Department launch their brand new 2024 collection Vibrance of Accra: Fashion on Focus. Founded by designer and entrepreneur Atanko Davidson, Complex Department recognises the untapped bridge between streetwear and luxury fashion. Davidson’s love of contemporary culture, art and attention to craftsmanship fueled the creation of the brand and its identity. The brand prides itself in their streetwear x luxury blend and shows this through its international inspirations from Ghana, highlighting the distinct flair of the country. Their varied collections tend to incorporate this blend through motifs of vibrant colours, bold graphics and statement patterns with relaxed, oversized silhouettes and structured tailored silhouettes. Their selection of styles brings something for everyone and sets them apart in the fashion Ghamian scene.
The 2024 capsule collection Vibrance of Accra: Fashion on Focus celebrates the colourful and eclectic culture of the city, celebrating its heritage, traditions and contemporary influences that make up Accra’s creative hub. The capsule collection incorporates the fusion of Accra’s history and its evolving fashion scene, with the inclusion of traditional Ghanaian symbols and Adinkra symbols honing culture through design. The collection also features knit vests, sweatshirts, tailored suits and casual wear all with intricate embroidery and prints to add to the character of the pieces. Along with clothing, the collection also features an array of carefully crafted accessories such as beaded jewellery, headwraps and handwoven bags. The brand’s commitment to quality extends towards its emphasis on sustainability and ethical practices with their eco-friendly materials being 100% sourced and produced in Africa.
Complex Department has started to make its mark amongst communities, bringing emerging designers and artists together such as NSG, Lil Berete and Asakaa boys and hosting workshops for independent creatives to support local works. The innovative brand has become one to watch both locally and internationally and we can’t wait to see what they bring us this new year.
