While on tour, musician Nneka took some time to collaborate with Minku on a lovely photoshoot.
Nneka is a talented and beautiful Nigerian-German soul/reggae singer currently on tour across Europe, promoting her new album ‘Soul is Heavy’.
In a photo shoot that was lively and informal, Nneka modeled some bags from the Minku Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection, that included a five-compartment, red leather travel bag lined with green contrast aso-oke fabric. The collection, ‘Folklorist Reloaded’, expands on the theme of the Minku AW2011 collection — the power of folklorists to unveil old ways and help us imagine new possibilities through their colourful folktales.
Named after prominent folklorists, the bags explore colour through what has become a Minku trademark of combining Sapnish-sourced leathers on the exteriors, and fabrics like aso-oke on the bag interiors.
Minku bags are sold exclusively at Nike Center for the Arts in Lekki Lagos and online at shop.minkudesign.com (with worldwide shipping). Customization services are also available.
Nneka is currently touring Europe, with her relaxing and inspiring brand of soul fusion and cool dance moves such as kept us captivated during her performance at Cruilla. If you get the chance to see her perform live, by all means put everything else aside and go.
