You Need to See This! Duro Olowu’s Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Duro Olowu Spring 2015 Ready to Wear Collection - Bellanaija - September2014024

If there is one thing we love about Duro Olowu‘s designs – it’s that he can take his experiences travelling and infuse it with his signature aesthetics to make gorgeous clothes. The Nigerian designer has unveiled his Spring Ready-to-Wear collection for 2015 which is filled with his signature silk patchwork cape and of course elegant prints.

The collection was inspire by Duro’s trip to Saint-Louis in Senegal 6 months ago where the European and African cultures found a common ground in fashion. He adopted his love for the beautiful place and interpreted it in his RTW collection.

As usual, the collection is filled with prints, but that’s not all – there are also flirty silk and georgette layered dresses, frilly skirts, wide-legged trousers; and more.

Speaking on fusing seasons from the past with those of the present Duro said “I’m always hoping that someone will take something from one season and wear it with something from another“.

    These are not ready to wear o. He had beuatiful pieces sold at JC Penney’s last year (2013). I got a few pieces when they were on clearance at the end of last summer (I mean rock botton clearance–beautiful Duro Oluwu dresses for $5.99!) I wonder why he stopped the arrangement with JCP.

    Don’t waste your money!
    Duro Olowu’s collection at JCP was a total waste of money. I purchased a bag and shirt at full price to support him. The purse strings broke the first time I used the purse. The shirt ripped from armpit to the wrist (on both sides!) after I wore the shirt a second time.
    Don’t waste your money, his collection might look pretty but are not quality products.

    Well, this is a LOT to take in. I’m trying to find my way through what looks like a jumble of fabrics sewn together. I like the orange full skirt sha, and if he sells just fabrics alone, I’ll buy one or two… But none of these

    The arrangement with JCP did not work because people did not like his taste.I saw them but would not buy them.He should design something we can wear and not a costume.This collection is horrible.I am sorry.
