Primarily regarded as the unofficial official first lady of the Brooklyn Circus, Nchimunya [pronounced “chuh-moon-yuh”, which is actually Danish for “5th born”, as she was the last of 5 children] was raised in Denmark and traces her beginnings to Zambia. Never one to just blend in any crowd [note her wonderful signature hairstyle and slight resemblance to Eve], her aesthetic already fit the ‘His + Hers’ format well before she was contacted for the project. Nchimunya’s day to day wardrobe relying on mens style oxfords shoes and shirts alike, as well as accessories like hats and beads to spice up voluminous skirts and her usually black heavy closet.
And what does one do when you love accessories that much? You start an accessory line. Beginning two years ago, [appropriately named “Fifth Born”] only designing exclusively for close friends and family, Ms. Wolf was heavily inspired after finally calling New York home earlier this year and began working under the wing of The Circus’ most recognizable figure, Ouigi Theodore. That lead to a compelling feeling to research her African heritage, ergo expanding the line.
Look for the ethnic influenced unisex line to launch sooner than you can say “bloggers blogging about their favorite blogger’s bloggers.” For the time being, check her out on various parts of the Brooklyn Circusshop and Tumblr.
