Nigerian designer, Duro Olowu, had prints “popping” in a myriad of dazzling colors at London Fashion Week. The bold designs of the Duro Olowu Spring 2014 RTW Collection are ones that even a blind man would notice. If you are wondering what it is like to be a ray of sunshine, wearing this collection will definitely help you feel the radiance. One may want to carry extra sets of sunglasses to protect onlookers from the bright reflections erupting from their outfit. According to Olowu, he wanted to create the “perfect cami”- “not too bare, or too short, or too long, that could be worn layered or on its own, and that had a bias-cut fit that just brushed the body”.
The collection, packed with the dramatic, threw punches filled with flair. From fabulous patchwork, powerful capes, and beautiful floral print dresses, the collection can be described as nothing more than one-of-a-kind. Like an irresistible, but strange beat, one cannot help but tap your foot to the unique rhythm of the collection. Olowu may have proven once and for all that the seventies style is just as cool as the fifties flair and the roaring twenties vintage royalty. Delightful stripes are a staple of the collection with nominal regard for continuation of one particular design throughout a garment, but instead as many as humanly possible. The Duro Olowu Spring 2014 RTW Collection mismatch prints triumphed with glory and lovely imagination.
