Wild Love in Africa
Steve McCurry (24th February 1950) is an American photojournalist who is known around the world because of his photograph “Afghan Girl”, which appeared in the National Geographic magazine in 1985.

WILD LOVE IN AFRICA INSPIRATION:
The creation of this collection was inspired by Africa and its textures, particularly those known to the fashion world; “Animal Prints”. Its textures reproduce the colour of wood, zebra hair, giraffe skin and horns.
The WILD LOVE IN AFRICA collection features mineral lenses, and the collection is created with a 100% eco-friendly acetate, made using natural organic compounds (cotton and cellulose paste) that are 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
Etnia Barcelona’s Wild Love in Africa collection collaborates with the NGO Africa Rising Foundation, a non-profit organisation founded by Ndaba and Kweku Mandela at the end of 2009 in order to contribute to the development of the African continent.
