Ready-To-Wear brand Alainé by Celine recently released its new collection titled Virgo featuring a range of pieces which put a new spin on the traditional Nigerian womenswear classic, the iro, and buba.
The brand channeled its passion for the richness of African fabrics and styles into creating a collection that cuts across cultural divides. The focus of the range is its faux wrapper: skirts and dresses sewn to give the illusion of an iro, without the hassle of tying a traditional one.
It is a fusion of Western and Nigerian styles, including a mix of Ankara, crêpe, organza and striped shirts. Taking its inspiration from Nigerian women and their different personalities, the brand seeks to provide women with pieces for every mood: from simple and elegant, to sexy and fierce and everything that embodies the Alainé woman.
