“Feminine, Poised & Youthful”! Emerging Nigerian Accessories Label, O’eclat presents its “Soigne” Collection Lookbook

The year has just officially begun and one of Nigeria’s fast emerging accessories label, O’eclat has got us excited with its colourful and youthful new collection.

Soigne meaning Sophisticated Elegance in French is the label’s tag line for the collection, which the creative director of the label, Gbemi Johnson describes as feminine, poised and youthful.

According to a rep for the accessories label, the Soigne collection is a celebration of the modern woman’s style and elegance. It includes clutches, shoulder bags, weekender totes, document clutches and miniaudieres as well as the label’s signature box bags in mini versions.

Soigne takes inspiration from the beauty and complexity of the African heritage. The brand seeks to create contemporary designed handmade purses and handbags using indigenous African fabrics. The historical influence is evident, but the exaggerated and unexpected textures – which are Adire and leather – are Gbemi Johnson’s stamp on the design label.

Check it Out!

    • ojay January 5, 2013 at 1:20 AM

      Jeez!when will pple learn to stop necessary criticism? How many tyms hv u thought out d box? Its called “embracing ethnicity” ankara can n will never be overused.

    • ene January 5, 2013 at 2:01 AM

      ankara can never be overused..please sassydiva take a seat… even burberry designer said that we nigerians are underestimating the value of ankara…you need to encourage these people not degrade their efforts…in short i can’t think of a more cliche thing other than your name

    • Mak Nisy CEO January 5, 2013 at 7:37 PM

      Tell her my dear, Ankara can never be over used..
      PS: is more like what is hot now if you care to know. Any lady stands out when she wears her work cloth or a casual wear and carry’s an Ankara bag or when you mix anything Ankara with continental clothing. I am handbag designer myself and I know how Nigerians and even foreigners marvel at my designs and want to own every piece really. I was at the African fashion week London, 2012 with Oeclat the designer of these lovely bags above and my dear’s we sold so many bags, got good press and have not stopped shipping bags since. So please if you don’t know what to write, keep our comments to yourself. Rather than insulting the hand work of another human being. It’s not made for everyone.
      PS: Oeclat dear your deigns are off the hook and you are already going places.. I want the small purse. Fabulous stuff
