Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013: Laurence Airline

Published

 on

Laurence Airline

 Showcasing her menswear collection, fashion designer from Ivory Coast, Laurence Cauvin-Buthaud of Laurence Airline unveiled its collection for Day 2 of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Africa 2013 holding in Tshwane, South Africa.

To the delight of the audience, the collection showcased clean cut shirts, subtle pastel colours and patterned geometric designs. The collection drew on her love for contemporary and timeless silhouettes that are rooted in Africa.

My Verdict
Right from her first showcase at the Samsung #AmazeAfrica show on Day 1 {click here to read} I loved her perspective of menswear. Laurence creates timeless pieces with a distinct African flare that not only makes each piece a work of art but gives them their own special timeline in the fashion era and horology.

If you missed out on the first set of shows from Day 1, you have missed out on a lot. But not to worry, we have got it all here:

    One of the best menswear collections I’ve seen in a while.
    Not big on the shorts but as a collective it works. At least she’s
    bringing some new pattern and tailoring techniques to the
    table.
