  • One of Bangkok's best concept stores shows a new perspective on African fashion
Another Story, the design-forward EmQuartier concept store, is set to launch a six-week (Aug 15-Sep 30) showcase of Africa-inspired design called Africa is Chic.
 
Covering products from home decor to fashion, Africa is Chic will feature over 30 globally trending brands whose products not only draw influence from Africa's varied cultures, but also craft skills.
 
 
In the home decor and kitchen section, look out for Indego Africa, a New York-based brand whose popping, modern baskets are woven from sweetgrass and sisal by craftspeople in Rwanda and Ghana.
 
 
You'll also find the Finish brand Mifuko, whose signature Kiondo basket bags combine Scandinavian design with Kenyan handicraft techniques. All of Mifuko's products are handmade in Nairobi and Mombasa by women's self help groups.
 
 
Also available at the store will be stationery with African-inspired graphics from one of Paris's must-visit stationery shops, Papier Tigre
 
 
The fashion section highlights Izembatho, a South African brand whose designs express the country's rural and urban culture. Check out the uber-chic boob tube dress to match with a printed headscarf for a total tribal look.
 
 
Staying with dresses, famed Kenyan brand Zuri brings its "1 Style" dress collection to the store. As the name implies, the brand only produces the one collection—and it does it well. The line is a massive hit in New York fashion circles at the moment. 
 
 
Also in store, Delasebure showcases colorful African prints on modern apparel like jumpsuits, kimonos and T shirts.
 
 
Shoe lovers will also cherish a pair from Panafrica, an ethical sneaker brand that uses colorful african fabrics.
 
Aug 15-Sep 30. Another Story, 4/F, Helix Quartier, EmQuartier, Sukhumvit Rd. 02-003-6138, BTS Phrom Pong
