MA Fashion: Latest ‘Sisi Eko’ Collection | A Must See

 

Design For Love‘s Spring/Summer 2016  collection is an absolutely mesmerizing transformation of Nigerian wax prints into ‘it’ girl wardrobe must-haves that have simply broken the long-standing characterization of wax prints as just a wrapper and blouse fabric into an essentially statement filled wardrobe staples of a cosmopolitan city girl with a thousand and one soirees and social events to attend.

This collection is filled with what seems to be the irony of Lagos living – ‘an organized chaos’! The collection draws references from the disco seventies with sequined stockings in an array of electric hues; ultimately giving it a dated feel, yet rejuvenated with flirty asymmetry of the blouses and a bubbling exuberance that can only be likened to youth and wonderfully encapsulates the authentic energetic Lagosian spirit of relentlessness, eccentricity, audacity with a one unifying factor of flirty intrigue.

Featuring blouses and dresses that skim the knee and cinch at the waist with a vitality and quirk that explodes into a cacophony of vibrant print saturated collection that serves as a visual palette cleanser and a nice break from the usually predictable wax print collections that I have seen in the past.
