The Coronation Collection

Available for purchase during Coronation Week, Tribal Immunity's Coronation Collection gives a new meaning to royal garments. This collection combined the traditional with contemporary. Carefully hand-painted, the pieces in this collection were first inspired by the Coronation Day of HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I and HIM Empress Menen Asfaw on 2nd November 1930. The creation in the collection also pay homage to His Majesty's various roles as statesman, Educator, and ruler. 

Pieces include the "Intellect" shirts, which replicate the cap and gown worn by Haile Selassie during the first graduation ceremony of Haile Selassie I University in 1962, as well as the Divine Star earrings, which replicate the Star of David designs that decorated His welcoming podium on his visit to Yugoslavia in 1966.

The true star of theis collection are the intricately hand-painted Coronation Dashiki T-shirts. These shirts were specifically designed in celebration of His and Her Majesties' Coronation Day. Reasonably priced, these pieces look great alone, with jeans, or under a blazer.
