About Camp Aama SS’22 ‘Salt Water’ Collection
This collection comes from the amazing designers, Akua Shabaka and Rebecca Henry. When asked about this collection, Shabaka and Henry say that they leaned into their passion for storytelling. “Our creative process stems a lot from creating worlds and seeing these characters and historical figures and moments in time,” said Shabaka in a press release. This mother-daughter duo has given us a collection with bursting colors, fabulous dresses, and swimsuits that make you want to jump in the ocean. The collection also includes things like matching sets, blouses, jackets, and more.
One of the first looks in this collection is a striped men’s set with a sailor hat and scarf that says “Camp Aama” on the back.. The color of this set is red and white, giving the idea of African/Afro-American diaspora and traditions of folklore and commune. Along with that, we have a striped women’s set as well consisting of a long skirt and a chicken bone crop top. The Women’s set is red and crème. The red and crème stripe colors are the colors of the African water deity Olokun.
