Duro Olowu unveils 2013 Spring Collection

Allure.” That was the result that Duro Olowu claimed he was seeking in a collection whose means to that end seductively embraced a varied spectrum of womanhood: from Renée Perle, the hauntingly beautiful muse of early twentieth-century photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue, to the Jamaican immigrants (Olowu’s mother among them) who arrived in England in the fifties on a boat called the Windrush, to the London cousins the designer played with on childhood trips from Nigeria.

Olowu molded these inspirations into a languid presentation whose subtle steaminess was ably assisted by another torrid New York night. But there was real spine to the languor. Olowu has a way of being fashion forward and bold, yet so breathtaking even the most timid would model his pieces. He paired all of his latest designs for Spring 2013 with nude pumps to let his eye-popping dresses and separates have their own stage.

Take a look at this British/Nigerian designers’ creations with varying florals, abstract patterns, graphic prints and more….duro-olowu-spring-2013
