Duro Olowu will hit the 10 year mark for his brand later this year. In that 10 years he has carved out a very distinct identity, one that is easily recognizable as unique to him season in and out. This Fall, Olowu presented a collection that was comfortable in it’s own skin. Every piece within was in some way a representative signature of the brand, from his bright prints to some sweeping mermaid skirts.
Fall 2014 was inspired by deco era furniture designer Elizabeth Eyre de Lanux and the Dada set—Man Ray, and Elsa Schiaparelli, who’s avante garde surrealist experimentation in the early 20th century have been widely emulated. Olowu’s own signature stamp lends itself perfectly to this inspiration. Enjoy!!
