SAKANA is a French brand of ready-to-wear feminine high-end created less than a year ago. Sakana means "have fun, play" in Lingala (DRC). We chose this term because it expresses our desire to shake the codes by having fun and combining two universes: the feminine / masculine classic and the ethnic cloakroom, to create innovative, rich and feminine patterns, cuts and textiles .
Each collection highlights 2 ethnic groups, which, once explored, will be associated with the classical cloakroom.
Priscillia Giannelli, fashion designer, fascinated by ethnic groups and their textile knowledge, graduated from a Parisian fashion school with a knit specialization. With a first experience in textile design, she wants to travel the world to enrich her textile knowledge and bring you to every collection a little bit of travel in your daily outfit. She is mainly responsible for the design of the garments and is at the origin of SAKANA.
Morgane Etienne, stylist and passionate about the work of the material graduated from a fashion school with a knit specialization. She then worked in a textile design company in France to broaden her knowledge. It is primarily responsible for the knit creation and the choice of materials.
WHAT WE GUARANTEE:
Our materials are 100% natural and of excellent quality. We try to work with companies that share our environmental values. All our fabric will be reused so as not to waste anything.
Sakana wants each woman to be fully and proudly assertive, for beauty has no color, no age, no format. We thus spread our cuts and sizes as much as possible. All the design of the collection, from the printing of the motifs to the realization of the clothes, is done in France, by our little hands. From the 100% homemade to the French!
What is Mobembo?
Mobembo is our first collection. This term means travel in Lingala. We chose to do things on a large scale and not to select two ethnic groups but to broaden our horizons to a greater extent to have a greater wealth of motifs and to be able to express our creativity more freely. Our intention is to conceive patterns that reflect the diversity of the ethnic groups chosen, assimilated to the urban world in which we live. Autumn colours and embroideries will enhance our rooms. The collection will consist of 10 outfits, so about thirty pieces.
