How did the partnership with Yoox come about and what does this mean for the brand? The YOOX team discovered KISUA on the internet and reached out for a conversation which has resulted in three collaborative collections. These cross-continental collaborations combine the vibrant Africa prints for which KISUA is well known, with classic Italian silhouettes that speak to YOOX’s Italian roots. The most recent collection was designed and manufactured in Africa. The garments were made in South Africa with fabrics sourced from Ghana and the Ivory Coast.
