‘Contemporary Africa’: Orleans Designs Spring/Summer COCO collection.

Published

 on

Orleans designs is a London based women’s wear and accessory brand. Their Spring/Summer 2010 collection presents African prints in 100% silk.

Hazel Aggrey-Orleans, the designer behind this collection ‘has been inspired by the cultural richness on her upbringing on West Africa’s tropical coastline and the urban expanse of London metropolitan mosaic’. This comes through as she opts for a contemporary take on African textures, by fusing the vivacity of African prints with the delicate texture of silk. The pieces are soft with a nice flow enhanced by the choice of silk, as the African prints are given more movement.

Clean cuts, vibrant colours and prints, soft drapes embody the pieces in this collection, which are very reminiscent of summer time with an air of freshness to each piece.
