ÒKUN is an African-inspired quality swimwear brand, forged out of the desire to communicate a new message in printed beachwear through the bold colours and language of African print.
Their SS13 collection is infused with the carefree confidence of newly independent West & Central Africa of the 60s & 70s and features traditional Congolese Kuba and Ghanaian Adinkra motifs alongside contemporary Nigerian prints which beautifully offset the detailed tailoring in their shorts.
ÒKUN is the Yoruba word for the Ocean and this trans-continental spirit underlines our dream of realising a contemporary pan-African fashion brand. This is the vision we proudly express on an international stage.
