The ‘Desert bloom’ collection by Abaya Lagos has us yearning for exotic holidays, sexy Sheikhs and upscale hotels. The collection is made up of gorgeous turbans in lovely hues, Handcrafted Embroidered Abayas (open front robes and kaftans; tunics and jackets) made from exquisite silks and velvets.
Opulence, romance, the Mediterranean, all these words come to mind whilst viewing the pieces. In the same vein, they fit right in any city and are super versatile. With eagle eyes on the Abayas picture it thrown casually over jeans and a tee, or even more elegantly worn for a black tie event!
Describing her collection as “the Evolution of Luxury“, the Creative Director, Salihat Rahaman further expounds: ” Each unique (handmade) piece has an added feel of elegance and luxury to it. Colours and textures are reminiscent of age-old Africa as well as Middle-Eastern Royalty, hence the theme “Ottoman meets Nubia”
“I find that I can change/ upgrade my look drastically but effortlessly with a single item of the collection, (either an abaya or turban), turning a regular outfit into something exotic and expensive looking. Bad hair days become a breeze using the turbans, and as an added advantage, I look chic and elegant while still covered up in all the “important” places. This gives me the utmost comfort and confidence. We want customers from different backgrounds to feel comfortable wearing Abaya Lagos merchandise regardless of cultural or religious ties”, she adds.
