Virgos Lounge Unveils “Peacock” Collection for Spring 2011

Published

 on

Virgos Lounge can definitely be counted amongst the fast emerging African brands. Three fashion savvy ladies were able to transform a simple business idea into a brand that offers vintage garments crafted to the sensibilities of the contemporary woman – It’s classic elegance demonstrated through a modern silhouette.

We’ve seen the brand consistently deliver, gradually paving their way and marking their name in the international fashion scene. As you know, our job at BN Style is to keep our readers in the loop of all Fabulous Fashion, and a new collection by the inspiring trio, is something we ought not to ignore.

“The Peacock collection is the new Spring collection designed by the Virgos Lounge Team. This collection consists of striking statement pieces in green, purple, blue, red and black embellished in gold, reminiscent of the iridescent and shimmery shades of a peacock which was the inspiration behind the design of this collection“- Virgos Lounge

It is a collection of short cocktail dresses and we see a few floor length dresses. In true Virgos Lounge fashion, it is clean sophisticated silhouettes combined with playful cuts and modern interpretations of vintage glam. We see sheer panels, lace, lots of pleat details, plunging necklines, it is all so beautiful to look at!

I love the  intricate beading  that adorn some the pieces. It’s an immaculately tailored collection.  My favorite piece in this collection is the black sheer floor length dress. I admire the architectural structure and it is  strikingly simple, a brand that manages to master that art, has won  me over!

    LOVE IT! Although the styles aren’t necessarily the kinds of things I’d wear I definitely appreciate the beauty of the clothing. 🙂

      So what’s your point now? Do you feel like you’ve cracked a joke? I commented on the designs saying I like it, does that mean I have to buy it? Is it everything you like you buy. What is your contribution? Some people on this blog sha

    @tiki that first pic is not photoshopped use ur eyes well she z standing on a suede bed or sofa this location is obviously an interior decor show room! beautiful beautiful n the model is superb! wow!
    @fashionista, no prob there’s room for everyone. everybody wants to be either act,sing, or design n not all go to school for it some just have the raw talent. and ur idea is wonderful we need a ‘real’ price abeg some of this cloths ‘sura the road side tailor’ can make sef. the big brands like bcbg, max azria, j.lo n co even have affordable brands in big dept stores. so urs will be welcomed too.
    @bella naija, pleas eo is there any price for ‘first’ to comment? its really annoying! yes first to comment so? we shud use ogbono as skipping ropes?….smh

  39. Question

    March 4, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Question: How do they source for their clothes? Are they original designs or do they source their clothes from a thrid person and sell it on their store… JUST wondering.

    • dee

      March 5, 2011 at 9:56 am

      answer: if you read the article it says they design the clothes “The Peacock collection is the new Spring collection designed by the Virgos Lounge Team”

    I love everything about this great attention to detail, looks straight out of vogue. The model is a goddess

  54. na me o

    March 5, 2011 at 10:48 am

    It is funny to read the comment that said the model is “not stiff”. Like that proverb where the okro seller says “my okro is not yesterday’s okro” even without being asked. I like the photography, clothes…. the model try sha but there is room for improvement, especially seeing the 5th and last pics. Thumbs up in general.

    Virgos Lounge DOES NOT DESIGN anything. They just collect clothes from wherever and sell it. The clothes are nice, but Im not too sure about the brand and image.

    • Farrah. M

      March 5, 2011 at 10:19 pm

      Hello Sharon, I am privy to how Virgos Lounge function as I have stocked their items in my store in London. If you go to their website you will see that it is split into two different sections. One section is called “Shop New” which shows you pieces SOLELY designed by them and are NEWLY tailored, while “Shop Vintage” shows real Vintage pieces that are made by other designers. I’ll have you know that I have also seen their portfolio and several sketches of their designs(past and present)…I can attest to the fact that they make their own designs. Please lets not make false claims and be appreciative of their work and creativity 😉

    March 7, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    I still think the picture is photoshop’ed…the angle is wrong for a normal picture, plus there is no telling depression on the bed as would be the case when u stand on a soft surface like a sofa or a bed…anyway i’m no professional, I may be wrong.
    @sisekomi, I think Omowunmi would kill the green mini dress with a drapey back! I’d love to see Genevieve Nnaji in the lace top and red skirt coz her legs would do the outfit justice, and rita dominic would be a versatile feast for the eyes in the pink number (second to last)!

    Beautiful collection. I’m in FashionHeaven. This looks like it could easily have been from Vogue or Elle or even Harpers….love the decor, the vintage yellow wall colour, the chandelier, and the final picture with the model in a sumptuous the-best-shade-of-pink-for-dark-skin gown, takes me to France. Ladies, the time to be feminine is now. This is not just vintage. This is Virgos Lounge Vintage…………
