[Aristide] decided to launch his brand, Kente Gentlemen, in April 2017, with a focus on handwoven fabric from craftsmen near the Ivorian cities of Yamoussoukroa and Korogho. His men's tailoring draws a sharp, modern silhouette with just the right dose of panache, courtesy of pink or blue vertical stripes.
[MIKARA] What is your favorite part about being a designer? Creating?
[Aristide] It's to see something that you dreamed about literally come to life. From sketch to crafting, and finally admiring the final product. It makes everything seems possible.
Lancé en 2017, Kente Gentlemen s’est fait remarquer en puisant son inspiration sur trois continents. Sans cesse entre Abidjan, Paris et New-York, Aristide Loua dessine pour les hommes des silhouettes classiques qui mettent en avant sa triple culture.
