Washington Roberts is a fashion womenswear label that infuses inspiration from African culture with a contemporary New York sensibility. The brand uses geometric shapes and precise tailoring to add a touch of culture and a sense of effortlessness to women.
Washington Roberts, the designer behind the brand is a Nigerian-born who was inspired by his grandmother’s sewing skills to create his first piece of wearable art.
Kevin moved to New York City to pursue his career in chemical engineering and realized that his true passion was crafting beautiful clothing for others to wear. He began in the fashion industry working with stylist Kithe Brewster and Showroom Seven and eventually designs for brands such as American Rag, Tory Burch, Victoria Secret, and Vera Wang.
For the launch of its latest collection called “Capsule I”, the brand has redefined its monogram with black, yellow, and white colors while keeping its identity made of geometry and perfectly arranged lines and shadows.The collection offers a mix of aesthetics and elegance that only the brand has the secrets of. We find elegant pieces such as evening gowns, charismatic Dinner jackets, silk scarves, trousers, skirts, and silk sets that bring back the glorious fashion trends of the 90s and early 2000s.
Not forgetting the stylish casual and streetwear garments, such as shirts, ensembles, bucket hats, slippers, and socks.
It’s a capsule full of originality and creativity where everyone can fit in;
And that’s what makes it so eponymous.
