JANABY Brings a Carribean Flare to Boston

Malva Janaby, one third of the sibling trio that makes up the brand JANABY, juxtaposes bright colors from his Caribbean roots with East Coast street-style. 

He showcased a joint collection with pieces from the lines “SAIL VII” and “K-MAMBO” at an exhibition produced by House Fashion Week on Oct. 15. 

Janaby shared some insight on what preceded this melting pot of a lineup, the following is an abbreviated transcript of that conversation. 

Q: What did the early stages of your career look like? 

I would take part in as many shows as possible as a way to get my foot through the door and gain recognition. As time went on, we noticed that more people knew who we were before an introduction.

Q: Where do you draw inspiration? 

My inspiration comes from wherever I am at that moment. When I’m out, ideas randomly come to me which is why I always have my sketch book and pencil with me.

Q: Is there a cultural influence on your designs?

Yes. I come from the Caribbean, where bright colors are a representation of my culture. Everywhere you go you see bright colors around you, even the houses there have bright colors. Some of my designs include those features. 

Q: “Fashion is easy just like you,” is printed on the back of one of your jackets, what does that mean to you? 

The message is simple (Just be yourself)
