Colorful and cool, Adwoa Aboad takes us to Ghana for Burberry’s latest collection
For the first time, Adwoa Aboah is photographed in Accra, Ghana, as she returns home to visit her family for new Burberry Pre-Fall 2018 collection, captured by Juergen Teller.
“Going home, back to the motherland. A place where I felt like an outsider but always wanted to belong. Growing up differently, never knowing the mother tongue. Where my father was born, the other half of my British blood, Accra,” said Adwoa.
The series includes a set of intimate images of Adwoa with her Ghanaian relatives, including her grandmother Gladys Aboah, great-auntie Mary Asare, cousin Kensemaa Aboah and her auntie Tina (Ernestina Aboah), who also designed one-off outfits made from the Burberry Vintage check especially for the occasion.
The Burberry Pre-Fall collection is a vibrant collision of prints, graffiti scribbles and checks. Spirited motifs refresh archival pieces. Silhouettes are layered and streamlined. Experiment with a clash of unexpected colour and contradictions.
Also featured are new styles of The Belt Bag introduced in canvas, new colourways and a smaller size.
