Presenting womaneswear designer, MOOFA‘s new collection for 2016 – “Sicily“.
Inspired by the sounds, colours and beauty of the Sicily Island, Italy, the fashion brand presents a Resort collection that mixes rich colours with exotic silhouettes.
The “Sicily” collection is a “cross between the shabbiness of the ancient coral coloured roof juxtaposed with the rich aqua blue colouring of the Mediterranean. A visit to the city leaves one with a certain longing- the sheer simplicity, dainty and charming tranquillity of it’s lovely endowment is reminiscent of the adduce qualities of the MOOFA woman.“
The pieces were created with a blend of exotic laces detailed with intricate embellishments, with floor-length dresses, high waist pants and more to cater to its vast clientele.
Speaking on the collection, designer Olayinka Aro-Lambo said – “the few days I spent touring the cities of Italy left some nostalgic longings and prior to creating this collection, I struggled with different emotions – there were times I felt like running away to a place as peaceful as the lonely planet and there were also times I had the energy and zest to slug things out back home.
The sweet blend of chaos and peace, good and bad, beauty and ash inspired me to create a collection that encapsulates my mindset and thought process at the time. My hope is that the Moofa woman finds the freedom to live and express her emotions without the fear of judgement.“
