Bineta Sanor Spring Summer Collection 2013

Bineta Sanor

Young designer Bineta Sanor’s passion for design started at her ealiest age. By launching her brand, she wants to promote creative and purposeful fashion.

When creating her brand, designer Bineta Sanor wanted to explore the close-knit world of ready-to-wear chains. Her idea was very simple: to offer an alternative to what is generally found in stores, with a golden rule to promote wax prints. Yet, as a sign of recognition, she combines the word “wax” at all seasons to provide inspired and unique pieces.

With printed cotton at the basis of all her collections, designer Bineta Sanor also mixes materials such as denim, silk, linen, embroidery and lace. Aside from offering singular prints and adjusted cuts highlighting any outfit, she also values rarity. Because all women are precious and unique, they must not all wear the same thing! Therefore, collection pieces are limited editions.

More essential is the message she wishes to pass in launching her brand: that of a dynamic Africa that develops, invests in research and commits to the future of women. Her idea of fashion dictates a simple message, “Fashion should be useful“.

Bineta Sanor’s new VERSATILE collection is an anthem for the modern woman. Combining strength and softness of materials and shapes, VERSATILE collection offers structured pieces and adjusted cuts embracing curves. The selected prints, ethnic and singular, elicit moods and desires in colors fruity and reassuring. From strapless leather dresses to padded shorts and perfectos, each piece combines charm and character to better celebrate what is unique in everyone.
