Day 2 of Lagos Fashion Week‘s Autumn/Winter show had a better turn out that Day 1, as expected. People came out to support designers on the line up for the night, Sisiano, Ré, Kenneth Ize, Style Temple and Orange Culture.
Known for lots of fluidity, the Sisiano collection this season had some layers to it (with jackets) and I absolutely loved his colour palette as well. It reminded me of Earth, Wind and Fire with his use of lovely earth tones with a pop of BN Style yellow for some sunshine.
He brought the fire to the aforementioned trio with fiery red eyeshadow on the models for makeup.
This collection took me back to my childhood with the bright playful colours, I absolutely loved it. My favourite piece from the collection has to be… Nope can’t pick a fave, love ’em all. I’m in love with colours so you can see why this is really hard for me. Stripes are also one of my favourite prints and this collection has a healthy dose of that.
The choice of makeup for the collection was perfect as well, bare-faced and fresh. I think anything else would have clashed with the colours on the clothes.
AsoOke makes another appearance here after popping up at the Mo Agusto collection yesterday, which is understandable. It’s one of our thicker fabrics here in Nigeria so if we truly had Winter it’d be a good choice.
Another Naija fabric appeared here in lovely hues as well, Adire. I truly enjoyed this collection, even down to the AsoOke neck scarves… Winter is coming!
OG Okonkwo always brings it and I was so anxious and excited to see this collection. And let me just say, my expectations were not cut short, I loved it. Beautiful, if I could I’d grab everything off the runway and make a run for it, especially the white crop top and skirt look with a pop of red lace on the bustier.
It was a 10 piece collection and each look had something I loved about it especially the colours and structure she created using layers on some of the looks. Go OG!
One of our BN Style favourites, Bayo Oke-Lawal just came to finish us and close out day 2’s shows with a bang. The colour, the music, the marriage of African culture and Western fashion… The collection had a bit of everything and we still wanted more because… OC! Duh!
The brand keeps pushing boundaries with African menswear and we’re totally here for it. My best part is, there are no limits to OC… I can wear everything!
