A Look At Duro Olowu and His Fall 2018 Ready To Wear Dress

Nigerian born, London based fashion designer, Duro Olowu, best known for his innovative combinations of international background. His empire waist patchwork “Duro” dress was named “dress of the year” by both American and British Vogue in 2005. Some of Olowu’s

His ready to wear collection for 2018, tend to populate his mood board with a host of strong, creative women. This season, Pauline Black—frontwoman of the two-tone ska revival band the Selecter—played the leading role in his inspiration. Fusing traditional ska rhythms with a punk edge, the music she made was a rousing response to Thatcherism in ’80s Britain and had a defiantly chic look to match.

Olowu is a mix master when it comes to print and color, and he set the tone for Fall with a vibrant chevron pattern that was evocative of the colorful youth movement. It lent Olowu’s signature feminine dresses and blouses a graphic beat and was a nice foil to sharply tailored striped suiting.

Floral motifs are usually part of the scenery in Olowu’s world, and they gained a luxe bohemian hand on velvet robe coats trimmed with fluffy Mongolian fur. The neat floral miniskirt suit was new for Olowu, worn with optic white Chelsea boots, and the look was a nice complement to the designer’s long, fluid lines.
