Enduring Spaces : A Bata Lookbook


We’ve always been fascinated by interesting spaces (you can see just how much here), and something that our city has no shortage of is these places.

Lusaka is a growing African metropolis, bursting with color, life and youth, but is also a testament to the old. This month we toyed with the idea of celebrating the things – the spaces – that have stood the test of time.

These places have a sort of poetic beauty, a beauty that comes from having seen our city grow & change. A beauty that comes with time.

Much like these spaces, Bata has seen many seasons, having been founded more than 120 years ago & in Zambia for 80 years!

From longstanding rooftops, to well-used pools; this lookbook, then, is a tribute to enduring spaces & brands and the devotion they inspire.
