Celebrating Black History & Influence Through Fashion
Celebrating culture is at the very core of D’iyanu’s DNA as a brand. The rich and complex African American culture with its diverse roots continues to be a strong force in every aspect of our lives, not just fashion. We commemorate this expansive influence year round, but with Black History Month we take it a step further because this time of acknowledgment has continued to evolve since its inception to represent so much more.
Our new Black History Month Collection highlights the dynamic nature of Black culture through bold prints, elevated style, tailored fits, and an overall sense of pride. Our exclusive prints were inspired by rich traditional prints including the Malian mudcloth print (blue navy mudcloth), Ghanian kente (black red kente), and Nigerian adire (brown black adire).
We’re excited to share our modern take for the multi-faceted D'iyanu woman with beautiful dresses that can be styled for a night out or casually accessorized for a chill lunch with friends. The D’iyanu man will feel confident in our perfectly fitted blazer for a distinguished look or a relaxed vibe with our new tribe hoodie. We have something for everyone in this new offering! Here’s a look at some of our favorite pieces from our latest collection.
