Yevu Pops Up

There’s no mistaking the bold colours, exaggerated motifs and eye-wobbling designs of Kente cloth. Inspired by West African street style, Yevu pair traditionally made cloth with modern tailoring to connect makers and buyers across the world through a shared appreciation for beautiful prints. Australian designer Anna Robertson dreams-up Yevu’s limited runs of dresses, skirts, tops, trousers and jackets before the garments are manufactured ethically in Ghana, all by hand to help support grassroots industry in Accra and directly benefit Yevu’s small team of skilled seamstresses. Usually found online, Yevu’s second bricks-and-mortar shop is now open, but there are only a few days left to catch the pop-up on Fitzroy’s Smith Street before it disappears. Rush in to sort out a winter statement piece or practice some power-clashing with layers of graphic and geometric prints, all rendered on handwoven cotton in a riotous palette.
