Deola by Deola Sagoe Wings by Deola Collection Lookbook - Bellanaija - May2015052

Remember the stunning collection showcase by Deola by Deola Sagoe in New York? We have the official lookbook images!

They first showcased the collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (See Here) with her daughters’ fashion line – CLAN to a lot of great reviews by fashion critics and our ever fashionable BN Style Watchers. Now we get to see all the detail in the lookbook featuring Zainab Balogun and Tansey Sodeinde.

Deola drew inspiration from her daughter’s class project which entailed part artistic and part scientific, based on moths, flies and butterflies. According to Deola, “Developing my own fabrics is essential for me. Every time you do it, it’s fresh; the drawings, the process of making Adire, starting with indigo and then just making music with colour and patterns, “fabric jazz”.

I wanted to play with floaty fabrics this time. It was just my mood. Of course I’m still in the throws of my love affair with Aso Oke which is still a huge feature in this collection.

“Wings by Deola” consists of 37 pieces whose names were derived from the characters in Shakespeare’s plays such as, Ophelia (the helper), Valeria (strong, valiant) and Juno (protector). The collection for Spring/Summer 2015 features detailed cut-outs, sheer fabric inserts, plunging necklines and more tying into the origami-theme. We absolutely love the clean cut and detailed hemlines that give an almost unrealistic structure to the pieces.

See the collection in detail below;

    this is the hand work of a professional.

    I think its high time we start separating the designers from the tailors in the nigerian fashion industry.

    my only problem is the background. its distracting and its spoils the view of the clothes.
    a plain white background would have been lovely.

    also next time pls use real models and don’t use tv personalities. the fashion industry and modelling industry go hand in hand. nigerian fashion industry and modelling industry need to help each other so they can grow. hiring ur friends who are tv personalities isnt doing the modelling industry any favours.

    this is the first time I will ever give a nigerian designer 7 out of 10. kudos.

    oya time for the ultimate jamb question- how much do they cost?

      I guess the photos are close range so we can see the painstaking details in the outfits.

      I notice you made negative comments on Linda Ikeji’s blog as well. Don’t know who you are but these comments probably explain why you’re alone in Jupiter, so you need to calm down with them.

    It is unbelievable that Nigerians can view this and deem it an awesome collection.One even insinuated that it can stand proudly beside any designer`s collection in the world.Really?Really,really?Ok,ngwa put this besides Tom Ford,Stella McCartney,Bottega Veneta (2016 resort) and then tell me how well it fares.All these sycophants are the bane of the Nigerian fashion industry.The tailoring here is at best laughable and she inculcate two many unnecessary difficult designs in her collection.All the cut outs must be stitched neatly and she doesnt have a team of machinists to do that so why not avoid them(cut outs) and keep the outfits simple,well tailored and fitted.

    This is a monumental miss and coming from Deola Sagoe,it is quite depressing.

    And oh,get of your key board if you don`t know much about quality in fashion.Dont be so proud to air you ignorance here.Na by force to comment?

    • Seriously

      May 14, 2015 at 12:39 pm

      Sometimes, Nigerians also tend to be sycophants to western designers just bcos of the name and it’s oyibo people. I don’t see much difference between these and those dresses done by popular designers. Many of them have bad tailoring too but it’s easily overlooked because of the name brand. However, I believe she could have used a better photographer, who will capture it well.

      @Godwin, WTF are you talking about. I hope you don’t choke on your own bile because you truly sound bitter. What’s worse is that you’re trying to cover it up with your ‘in good faith’ speech. What difference have you made with your lousy a$$ 10 lines of negative text.

      We don’t need to know who you are to see that you are a highly unaccomplished person with deep insecurities. No one who has worked hard and has seen good reward for it will talk like you’re doing. Who TF are the f*(*&ing names you have up there? If you knew the extent of brainwashing they have done to get you to think they are superior.

      I just feel back because people like you will influence certain minds out there and what we need is certainly not naysayers who will discourage those who are truly working to make a difference.

      People like you make me weep for our race.

      To Deola Sagoe, I say well done! I personally love the collection and hope and pray I can afford many of your pieces someday.

    May 14, 2015 at 6:21 am

    And the models,hair and make-up,photography?Lord almighty save my soul!How could Deola have sanctioned this quality of photos to get in the public domain in 2015?

      May 14, 2015 at 9:50 am

      Not just one thing is ok in this whole collection according to you abi?
      Pls, can you show us your own design…be it fashion, photography…any design whatsoever before you write off someone’s sleepless nights effort

    • Godwin

      May 14, 2015 at 11:03 am

      Come on,chill.My criticism was done in good faith and not maliciously.Let us get sentiments out of the way;this doesn`t cut it on the international stage.Deola has been doing this for than a score of years so she ought have know.

    @ Godwin where is ur own collection?how can u not see even one good thing about these designs?sure its not perfect but pls temper justice with mercy!

  21. me

    May 14, 2015 at 8:58 am

    This is by far the worst collection by Deola….. Don’t get me wrong, I love the wing concept, but with Deola I often see perfection…. something definitely went wrong with this…. an icon should not be in the Same class as new designers

    Compared to what you get in Nigeria, this is very good stitching!

    • Godwin

      May 14, 2015 at 10:59 am

      Designers should be measured based on international standard and this would definitely not cut it on the international scene..There should only be one stand and it is the international standard.

    May 14, 2015 at 9:43 am

    good job i must confess but the background is not good and the photographer dint allow me see the beauty of this wonderful work by cutting it half and half please next time let some be full as in full and then half if it must be

    I have to agree with Godwin on this one. Deola Sagoe is a master at what she does for sure but this is a flawed collection, especially the tailoring. I was surprised to read all the accolades in the comment section. The cut outs are quite disturbing, the photography is poor and the background is competing with the clothes for attention; distracting. At first glance the dresses look flawless but BN did title it “Beauty in Detail” and naturally when you hear/see “detail” you’re bound to take a closer look, scrutinize. I did scrutinize and then I started to fall out of love.

    Godwin, thank you very much. Nigerians can be such hypocrites. You’re very quick to bash up and coming designers and throw accolades at aunt Deola even if I don’t think there’s any difference. I see Maki oh has inspired the Adire trend.

    • Blossom

      May 16, 2015 at 12:41 am

      Oh, I didn’t realise Maki Oh created and patented Adire. Wow.

      *hisssssss*

    May 14, 2015 at 9:32 pm

    Deola, well done. Your imagination is eons away. The colour schemes, the shapes, and the way you skillfully combine these silks with adire. All just so wow.

  28. integrity

    May 15, 2015 at 12:21 pm

    I feel its odinary with the adire concepts. I wasnt too WOW. Not the usual Deola sagoe. It is because am seeing some new concepts and styles in other places.

    Dear people that don’t have an idea what they’re talking and too quick to make judgments, please do some research on what a fashion collection entails. This to me is one of the best I have seen from Deola so far, the pieces are cohesive, the background flows very nicely with the theme and pretty much makes sense being that her inspiration was butterflies and moths (look at the bigger picture) , the lighting is just the right amount, clean cuts and finishing. I love the fact that she decided to use the wings in different areas; the cut outs, in the prints, the neckline and also as a decorative detail (the law of repetition). I could go on and on; In my opinion this is a job well done,I am impressed.
