MASAI – VOICES OF THE WILD COLLECTION
This Season Daynight Casual goes to Africa for inspiration. You will follow us through Zimbabwe. Up to Masai Mala national reserve with all its amazing animals. Stunning giraffes, resting zebras, powerful and imaginative birds in neomint are reflected in the garments. But we also have a graphic print “Masai” as a complement to the exciting jungle “Zimba” print. As forests are destroyed and their animals are threatened, designer Tess Callervik is inspired to illustrate animals and their nature. Some are from the imagination and others are realistic. Lovely long caftans, shirts and our favourite sweaters are a few pieces from the collection. We hope you will enjoy this journey as much as us 🙂
Daynight Casual was founded and launched in Stockholm 2017 by the designer and illustrator Tess Callervik. After years of working in fashion with her custom-made prints and illustrations, she decided to start something for her self. A new brand came to live with the vision of creating exclusive casual wear with focus on beautiful prints.
The idea was to create a playful base wardrobe with expressive keypieces. As for the silhouettes, they are not very complicated, more like classical and timeless. It is with the help of details, prints and fine materials Daynight Casual distinguish. The garments suit all occasions when you want to dress up and still be comfortable. Day and night.
WE CARE ABOUT OUR PLANET EARTH!
We are therefore a Slow fashion brand.
Slow Fashion is an awareness and approach to fashion, which considers the processes and resources required to make clothing, particularly focusing on sustainability. It involves buying better-quality garments that will last for longer and values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
• We use high quality, sustainable materials such as Lyocell, Viscose and Cotton.
• Our patterns are not adapted to each garment, which means that we are avoiding waste of fabric. In this way, each garment becomes more unique.
• We have few, specific styles per collection, which are released twice or maximum three times per year.
• We are using recycled plastic bags for our e-commerce. Each time we order more bags a new tree is planted.
Daynight Casual is made in Portugal.
