“The structure of the garment empowers the structure of the mind” – KENIYA X LABEL
Former creative director of Toronto’s Beaucoup Fashion House, Godfrey Mensah is used to producing high quality, high fashion luxury pieces consistently, so when he dropped his newest label, Keniya-X, it was bound to be good.
Keniya-X Label is named after Mensah’s daughter and ‘generation X’: the stronghold of Culture shifts.
Refusing to categorize itself as a brand, Keinya-X has instead established itself as a collective of creators expressing a fortitude in craftsmanship and passion. The mainline, ‘DECONSTRUCTED’ recently showcased ‘crossing borders’ at Ottawa Fashion Week and was met with a great response for the culture-shifting brand.
With mystery surrounding the next stages of development for both DECONSTRUCTED and sub-line CUT & SEW we can but wait with baited breath (and watch the beautifully directed video below again and again…huge respect for director Diego Sanchez)
