"EmmyKasbit drew inspiration from the lives of the sub Saharan nomads for the A/W17 collection titled 'EXPEDITION'. The collection explores the story of a man on a Journey to Liberation from life's setbacks and features a new sense of elegance to menswear with the use of wool, corduroy and jacquard prints, all put together to produce vintage/sporty silhouettes for the everyday nomadic man" the brand revealed in a note.

For this collection, we partnered with shoe designer King David Shoes to produce high quality men's footwear"; the brand's creative director Emmanuel Okoro shares.
