Global Style: Wax Print Cotton For a Taste of Ghana

233293795_aFKwp-L

Ever since Franz West created his delightfully mismatched chairs out of African wax-print cotton, I have been obsessed with this traditional Ghanaian fabric. The kaleidoscopic colors and graphic prints give this fabric its “more is more” appeal, and they only look better when layered. This trend has been in full-force for the past year – seen everywhere from designers Suno to Peter Pilotto and worn especially well by Solange Knowles – and I couldn’t be happier. The newest favorite finds: FairEnds baseball caps made from dead-stock Ghanaian fabric and Threads of Change‘s beautiful iPad covers.
