Tribe Amrapali recently collaborated with fashion couturier Masaba Gupta to release a super mod line-up of jewellery Ghana Ghana consisting of chunky, layered or oversized tiered necklaces, tasselled earrings, small ear studs and rings available in classic gold-plated and silver.
Masaba adds a playful vibe and brings a constellation of sub-cultural motifs inspired from the Akan tribe, such as turtles, crocodiles, tribal dolls, vases, pots, and masks along with her signature motifs like palms, cameras, cows, candies to name a few. All the 200 pieces from the collection are hand-beaten and capture the ethnic and tribal beauty of the land.
Talking about the collaboration, Akanksha Arora, creative director of Tribe Amrapali commented, “The collection strikes a perfect balance with Masaba’s high fashion clothing and our love for strong tribal style, especially the African sub-cultures. The collection has gone through multiple samplings to achieve the desired features. With zero-machine support in all the operations, including jaali work, repousse (engraving), oxidisation, wire work,
and bead work, we have been able to realise the collection that embraces African heritage in exactitude.”
“I, along with my mother, have lived through the brand Amrapali in Jaipur since my childhood. So, there was no doubt to choose any other brand than Amrapali to launch my first-ever jewellery line. Tribe perfectly fits my brand essence. All the pieces are light, versatile and wearable, which makes this collection an anytime-anywhere jewellery line,” said Masaba Gupta.
