Renowned Designer Duro Olowu has released the lookbook for its Spring/Summer 2018 collection which was recently shown at London Fashion Week 2017. The graceful and feminine collection was inspired by Lee Miller who was a gorgeous and soigné model, photographer, and muse to surrealist artists including Man Ray and Cocteau.
For Olowu, capturing the je ne sais quoi of such a complex and lively woman entailed making clothes with a kind of frankness: be it a suit of ochre-toned denim, a shirtdress inspired by the trench coats Miller favored, a simple smock, or a lank, double-breasted coat.
As usual, Duro Olowu used bold prints and bright colours to bring his designs to life. The prints and the way they were mixed were just off enough to challenge the eye, but still sufficiently inviting to draw you in. This ready-to-wear collection is fresh, youthful and feminine.
