The Spring-Summer season's collection by Duro Olowu was inspired by the cover art for the album The Pointer Sisters, Ozu's film Drunken Angel and Japanese film noir and 1940's pinups. The shapes are classy and come with kimono-sleeve lightweight robe coats, soft peplum bias-cut dresses, A-line skirts, long ball skirts, as well as easily accessible looks like bias-cut, silk-and-georgette layered dresses, waterfall ruffle emerald green bias-cut gowns. The prints are vivid and bright, consisting of floral and graphic, tribal prints (my favorite hand-drawn circles), which make me think of Africa.
The bright colored, floral gown with wide, short sleeves and below the knee skirt is perfect for those who love attention.
Make your days fresher and brighter with these separates, which are ideal for creative parties.
The fuchsia cape is worn atop spaghetti strap dress. That's a festive look, which is ideal for open air parties and disco nights.
Here we see an A-line blazer worn with wide-leg capri pants.
The wide sleeve, light-weight cape is worn with vibrantly printed suit jacket and a ensemble.
If you want to have a fresh look at some semi-formal event, then try on this outfit, which consists of a floral blazer worn with the same print ensemble.
Here we see a floral print maxi gown with red polka dot ruffles at the bottom.
The maxi gown with ruffled bottom is worn underneath creatively printed poncho. Love the striped beanie and the cat-eye sunglasses.
That's a stunning bright green red carpet floor-length dress with a waterfall ruffled back.
