Los Angeles-based designer Melody Ehsani has teamed up with Reebok for yet another collaboration collection, but this one is surely one of the most woke we’ve seen from the duo. And we’ve got one word to sum up our thoughts about it: obsessed.
As Ehsani’s forthcoming Spring 2017 collection, the exclusive line, which is tagged with activist Wael Gonhim’s quote “the power of the people is greater than the people in power,” celebrates the beauty, power and legacy of women of color.
“This particular collection is dedicated to women of color,” said Ehsani in a statement. “Drawing from iconic imagery of the past while honoring the present, I am reminded of the legacy of beauty, power, intelligence, resilience and vision that has always existed. We stand on the shoulders of greats who have come before us, while honoring those present among us who have literally created movements in their respective mediums. The effects of which will affect generations to come.”
Known for specializing in quality goods like jewelry, accessories, footwear and apparel, this collection (the first of four she’ll be presenting) boasts of fashion-forward pieces like denim jumpsuits, button-up dresses and scuba dresses featuring none other than Nefertiti. And of course, the collaboration includes a Reebok sneaker dubbed Princess, which flaunts Nefertiti on the heel with cream and red detailing.
