Grey’s Laser Cut Spring/Summer 2016 Collection is Completely Something Else!

Richard Akuson

Using etches of doll-like illustrations, laser cut technique, exaggerated larger-than-life bows, mix-match of colours and prints; Grey goes on it’s most explorative and adventurous  foray into “the often uneven, imperfect yet inspirational stories of women both from a personal and a socio- political platform”, says Rukky Ladoja – Grey’s Creative Director, while speaking on the inspiration behind the collection.

Largely made up of satin silk and silk woven jacquard, Grey’s latest collection looks easy to wear and completely balances a beautiful thought process that seamlessly transforms into this resoundingly functional and commercial collection. Which is a plus, especially for a creative space where other designers are constantly fraught by the inability to successful think and execute without losing the essence of either.

    Why are the midels standing in such an ungainly. Awkward manner making the clothes look lifeless they are just basic

    Grey = Maki Oh + Bridget Awosika + Jewel by Lisa. I’m not accusing them of copying I’m just saying the collection is a weird fusion of all three designer’s signature styles. Lovely collection, regardless.
