French fashion house Kenzo is known for its colorful, expressive designs and campaigns dedicated to inclusivity and a real look at style.

With their most recent campaign featuring the always fabulous Tracee Ellis Ross, it’s no surprise that they’re keeping the momentum going with a poignant look at Nigerian culture.

To show off their newest collection, Kenzo enlisted a team of Black creatives including video director Akinola Davies Jr. and photographer Ruth Ossai, both UK-based Nigerians, and stylist Ibrahim Kamara.

Capturing young Igbo people as they celebrate various Nigerian ceremonies, festivals and rituals, the collection is a fresh and unique look at the brand’s offerings this season.

The images below celebrate three main festivals celebrated by the people of Nsukka: Onwa Eto, Onwa Ise and Onwa Esa and will be featured in Kenzo’s first quarterly publication.

Check out the highlight above and the collection below!
