BN Exclusive: “Nouvelle Histoire” – Heritage Rediscovered by VLISCO



It is the first Vlisco collection of 2011 and this collection will surely enchant you! The new collection  – “Nouvelle Histoire” – is inspired by Vlisco’s heritage. We totally love the styling of the new ad campaign – it seems as though the “turban” trend is here.

Here is the official statement from Vlisco on “Nouvelle Histoire”:

Vlisco drew her inspiration from her own rich heritage in creating the new fabric collection ‘Nouvelle Histoire’. In the collection, iconic Vlisco designs are rediscovered and redefined into new narratives, resulting in illustrative memoirs with a twist. The unmistakable Vlisco sense of sophistication is enhanced by the use of familiar colours. ‘Nouvelle Histoire’ consists of modern-day collector’s items from Vlisco’s own Golden Age, a genuine treat for true fashionistas.

    I totally HEART Vlisco not sure i want my phone hanging somewhere outside my handbag though. Hope it’s detachable

    Love it! Vlisco always amaze me with their amazing photoshoots.
    @iyabo….my fears exaclty. I’m afriad we will make our own anakara become “played out” which should never happen, since its signature to us.
    hopefully anakara can become interchangeable like denim (which never gets old).

    Ankara wasnt orinally Nigerian but eventually Igbo women insired some ankara designs and not too long after the Northern women. Ankara is a classic, depending on the style you chose there is always a fabric for it. Unfortunately, most of us just pick an ankara fabric and assume it goes for a certain style and eventualy abuse the fabris in the style. Vlisco and day!

    These shots are amazing! The combination of light and fabric in these pieces deserve a second look. The colours are vibrant and eye-catching. The models are wearing it well and the headpieces are quite enchanting!

    The turbans are epic…. the accessories tooo i waaaaaant!! The dresses are just basic… Vlisco just has a way of using some kind of models and locations that add a lot to their pictures.

    Print can never be out of fashion, in other parts of Nigeria Note in other parts of Nigeria apart from Lagos it is the main wear. Long before lAGOSIANS knew what it was the other parts of the country have always and will continue to wear it. Just like the two wrapper some will soon start saying its over worn can also never go out of fashion in the South South in Nigeria
