Soul fusion songstress Falana's aesthetic is a little bit hard to pin down - in all the best ways. One day, she's performing in a pair of jeans and simple black tee. Another day, she is on stage in a mint-green hand-crafted frock and heels. One thing for certain, Falana will be seen rocking her signature braids. 

On what appeared to be a photo shoot set, Falana opted for classic glamour atop a motor bike in a Lisa Folawiyo J Label cowrie print top and pleated skirt. The vintage vibes were solidified in her white cat-eye sunglasses and open toe patent sandals. The contrasting backdrop and flooring harkened back to Malick Sidibé and his legendary studio photographs that captured the exuberant lives of fellow Malians during the mid-twentieth century. Falana's style-shifting sensibilities are ones to watch this year.
