Kemkemstudio Autumn/Winter 2011/12 Collection (Heritage Part 2) – The Lookbook



Nigerian Label, Kemkemstudio has released the lookbook for its A/W 2011/12 collection. using predominantly Aso-Oke, the collection consists of structured and delicately textured pieces in lush jewel tones.

The inspiration comes from my love for the Aso-Oke fabric (hand woven fabric from the Yoruba culture). I have been experimenting with the fabric for a while now. We make our Aso-Oke so it is exclusive but this time around I also collected and used vintage Aso-Oke from my clients, friends and families. We have infused the ancient fabric with new age fabrics here like Silk, Ankara, Cotton jersey and Lace. I decided to make a wearable Aso-Oke collection that suited a fun and playful lifestyle. Lots of looks that can be carried from day to evening, multi purpose clothing.  A bit of the old and new, yet contemporary“- Kemmy Solomon

    Did she stand like that on purpose?

    I can’t help but think that I missed something. I mean, i’m sure the clothes in themselves are okay, but the overall picture did not inspire me to look at the detail, so…*thumbs down*

      N30,000 ke? LOL. If lower-end brands have pieces for N30,000, it’s highly likely these pieces are even more expensive than that.
