Ready-to-wear brand, Alali Boutique is out with its most recent collection. Inspired by the subconscious thoughts of Creative Director, Oroma Cookey-Gam, during her Christmas trip to the creeks of Calabar and Opobo Kingdom, the collection unsuspectingly fuses together surface water sports’ wear with the glamour of the 1950s to create effortlessly stylish pieces.
“Imagine you could wear really glamorous and stylish clothes jetskiing or wakeboarding…Think speedy, glamorous and intriguing. For shapes I looked to the 1950s, for detail I looked to the panelling in sportswear and for colour, I looked to the landscape of the South-South of Nigeria”– Oroma Cookey-Gam
Although more structured than a typical Alali collection, the A/W 12 collection stays true to the aesthetics we associate with the brand; soft silhouettes, fluid pieces and sheer details.

The Colour Inspiration
The Shoot: “The make-up is dark and intriguing with a touch of blue for a contemporary look. The hair channels the speedy / sporty aesthetic and the collection is styled to introduce a tribal impression while preserving the sporty and intruiging elements.”– Oroma Cookey-Gam
