UK-based Nigerian designer, Duro Olowu, has showcased his Autumn/Winter 2017 designs at this year’s London Fashion Week, LFW, which commenced on February 16.
The Collection still tuned to Olowu’s distinctive key- vibrant colours and mixed prints!
Olowu’s key print was a check-like pattern almost strident in its black and yellow palette, he also used diamond-pattern jacquard, and a silk print that set florals over a black and white grid. Graphic-ness was reinforced by this collection’s plethora of polka dots and stripes, the latter of which Olowu created via paneling.
The designer went for maximal volume while maintaining a certain decorousness of shape, and doubled down on his instinct to have his woman take up space by adding big pouf sleeves to a handful of looks.
