iamISIGO Autumn_Winter 2013_14 Collection Lookbook - BellaNaija - August2013027

It has been a long time coming! After taking a 2 year break, Paris based design label iamISIGO debuts its Autumn/Winter 2013/14 collection lookbook – 11 Voltaire.

The collection, was inspired by the designers fascination with universal laws in the moral world that are yet to be uncovered in the physical world. According to the designer, Bubu Ogisi, the collection was named after the arrondissement (administrative district) in Paris where Bubu  lived as well as the French Philosopher, Voltaire, who believed & promoted religious tolerance, freedom of expression and the separation of church and state.

The edgy & dark collection comprises mainly of hand-painted pieces with light fabrics ranging from satin to woven crepes, semi-sheer fabrics of organza and chiffon and metallic cotton. Its pieces have an easy-breezy aura that celebrates the modern woman in a minimal yet captivating way.

View the 11 Voltaire Collection below.

    Poor Photography! This same Kiki Melissa Messed up the last edition of Complete Fashion magazine. Have u guys taken an inside look Isio’s pictures? To say the Pictures are Horrible is an understatement. Kiki needs to go back and learn the word “PHOTOGRAPHY”. She just ruined Complete Fashion magazine. Gosh!
    My wife cant wear this outfits, so there’s no need to comment on them.

    Nice attempt. but I do not see the average naija babe or upper class chic for that matter wearing any of the above. Also, these dark designs give me the impression of a dominant partner in a lesbian relationship *urghh* shuts off window and runs away to more friendly sites that show pleasant feminine wears

    Amazing lookbook, lol its clear that a lot of Nigerians aren’t fashion forward, every designer has a target market, the designer can’t please everyone on bellanaija and their daft opinions, this collection oozes creativity and its clear that the designer has an immense knowledge of what the word “High fashion”means. I love every piece!!!

      The fact that some people do not like the designs doesn’t mean they should be addressed as “daft”. Different strokes from different folks.
      The designs might be great but the poor photography didn’t make me take a second glance at them.

    @ Musa,I pity your wife,she must be leaving in bondage.(Lol)..That what my supposed ‘Fiance’ want me to dress,like a conservative deeper life member,or risk losing him…I’m ready to leave his cheap as*,still love him though…finding some one who will be as honest and faithful like him will be difficult,but what can I do? I love decent fashionable wears!

    Great collection BUT horrible shoe choice. Jeffrey Campbell
    Lita’s? That just took the collection down a whole 100 notches. I
    LOVED the shots where the models were barefeet but the shots with
    shoes….whoever styled this should have given them simple but edgy
    black stilettos. The shoe selection cheapens everything.

    The clothes are very hip hop goth. I think the reason why
    it is so hard for some people to get it is because of the styling.
    I see individual pieces had people will really appreciate when they
    see them styled for real life.

    @sita im totally in sync with you!that was exactly what i said when i saw this LITA boots..coupled with the fact that they are kinda tight on the model such that it has UGLY contours created by her legs….a pair of spiked/studded courts e.g(PIGALLE or PIGALLE-INSPIRED courts) would have been effortlessly tasteful..
