It’s been a long time since I’ve written a diary post! It seems a good time to do a round up of the summer. Like most of you, I imagine the summer has felt like a respite from the pandemic. It’s still very much around, but it feels like we’re learning to live with it, and like most people, I was keen to make the most of freedom by seeing friends and family and travelling. To that end, we released the most beautiful Nubian Skin collections yet, which were a celebration of colour, and our collection Jaiye (meaning enjoyment in Yoruba) was the perfect embodiment of that.
I started the summer in the US, and had a little pop up at the Rack Shack in New York. It was so lovely to see some long time fans of the brand and meet some new faces as well.
I’ve had fun this summer styling Nubian Skin with some amazing brands like Lisou London and Kai Collective.
It's hard to believe that it was 8 years ago that our first campaign when viral. We’ve come a long way since then. In October it will be eight years since Nubian Skin first launched, so I’m busy planning something special for that too.
I hope you’ve all had a good summer, enjoy the last of the sun-filled days.
