Ayo Van Elmar gods and dolls Spring Summer 2015 Collection - Bellanaija - December2014002

Get ready for the Spring/Summer 2015 collection from eponymous Nigerian design label Ayo Van Elmar called the “gods and dolls“.

The designer describes the collection as the love a man has for a woman whom he tries to grasp. “Smitten by an Antwerpic daze, he is caught in a trance that unveils his lady as a goddess. He desires to worship her indisputable glamour, elegance and beauty“.

She lifts him into another world, a playful doll he seeks to join and yet elusive to his grasp. Her ways remain mysterious to him. Is she real or surreal? She mesmerizes him with her enigmatic personality, which he cannot read. He dreams of her as a doll, he dreams of her as a goddess, he rolls in a bubble of adoration for her, but yet he struggles within. He is conscious of her strengths, that she is the pillar upon which the entirety of his being relies“.

The collection is filled with bright colours, sequined separates, embossed tops and skirts, asymmetrical hems and floral bottoms. We like how different yet in sync the paired outfits look; and pieces from the collection have already been seen on personalities like Isio Wanogho and Ndani TV’s Folu Sorms.

See the collection below;

      Don’t be rude…you really didn’t have to leave a comment.. I bet some peeps don’t think it’s fantastic but didn’t say. Not expecting everyone to love it, be “wowed” by it or to understand it. That’s someones hard work you know?

    Green and orange are two colours that are quite uncanny and sceptic in fashion. However, Ayo van Elmar has done a really good job and the babe’s daring o! I must say… mixing those colours = not giving a shit + doing your shit! Shit well done! I love! The blazers can kill.

    @bruno… I love you comment, lol. But that’s the world and mind of an artisit. There’s what you call a theme, a mood board, the spring of the designer’s inpiration. Sometime’s you’ll understand, sometimes you won’t, that’s real art. Maybe you can see the poetry, a bit in the poses, especially those of the white model….Ok..: Shey you get?
