Mélange by Danny Pato is a celebration of diversity and culmination of cultures, depicted through a strong heroine signature to his aesthetic. Shot by photographer Mara Sommer with make-up by Kiekie Stanners and styling by Rachel Morton and Pato, the images are provocative, colourful and of striking concept. The collection features traditional Kuchi nomadic tribal jewellery from Afghanistan.
“This collection is a mix of colour, texture and sheer exuberance taken from diverse cultural references, working as an antidote in a time of global political uncertainty. It acts as a reminder of the joy that a cultural mix offers us all. “
