In Celebrating the Talents of the African Continent, Beyoncé Made the Year’s Most Fashionable Statement
Raised in France by Senegalese parents, Dyenaa Diaw pays tribute to her roots with her label, Peulh Vagabond. Launched in 2014 with a capsule collection, it is named after the French term for the Fula people of West Africa. The label combines Diaw’s multifaceted creative influences with a singular vision: Everything from vintage Yves Saint Laurent shows to the traditional dress of the Maasai people has provided the designer with inspiration. A patterned dress influenced by the latter caught Beyoncé’s eye, as did the brand’s high-waisted pants and crop top Missandei set, which she wore with swagger.
