Love April Oversized Tribalism Collection Lookbook - BellaNaija - November20130010You just have to love Love April.

The emerging Ghanaian design label, created by designer – Nina Barkers-Woode, presents to you its 2013 collection titled “Oversized Tribalism“.

This collection was inspired by the beauty of African women. According to the label, “Our motive was to not only harness the Barkers-Woode woman’s natural female form through dramatic tribal prints but to also uniquely contemporize the look and feel of each piece. Inspired by the world history generations of women and androgyny artworks, the Oversized Tribalism collection plays on the mixture of minimalism and femininity.

Our exaggerated seam-lines emphasis our cling to modern culture. Our true, bare, chic necklines keep us in the realm of ancients. Our abstracted textured prints will ultimately immortalize the classic style and feel of a woman.

I love the rolled up details and who wouldn’t love to wear those monochrome ink print trousers.

Check out the collection below and let us know what you think.

    I am no fashion expert or anything but it seems this designer just copied everything Solange has ever worn, and voila, a collection. Plus the beautiful hair on the model is not helping matters.

    The model’s pose reminds me of Nollywood’s potrayal of an Ogbanje
