he word ‘Imole’ translates to ‘light’ in the Yoruba language of south western Nigeria. When Imole comes, darkness goes away. For its Spring/Summer 2022 collection, Nigerian fashion brand, Irawo took this literally as it showcased a bright collection inspired by tropical islands. This is well-fitting as Lagos, the city that it calls home, is a coastal city that boats beautiful beaches, island as well as sunshine.
Of course, Irawo isn’t the only one who gets enthralled into this fine world of sky and sand as dreamy islands loom large in our collective daydreams. Close your eyes and you will likely conjure up images of the perfect island paradise: a sweep of sugary white sand fringed by palm trees and the glittering ocean. Even just uttering the word “island” or “beach” can bring a smile to your face and lighten up your mood. Indeed the collection has the same effect as its splatters of colors, patterns and details is undoubtedly refreshing.
In this collection, the fashion brand focuses on creating a collection that would bring utter joy and comfort which is why several of the looks feature pastel colors in hues of green, orange, golden yellow, and blue in relaxed and structured pieces. This clearly shows the woman whom the collection was specially created for–one who takes pleasure in individuality, light and the rich African heritage. Speaking of rich heritage, all batik fabrics in this offering are created exclusively by Irawo Studio. So, if you’re the girl who’s delighted at the richness of colors, textures, and the motherland, you’ll surely find Imole a collection that ticks all your boxes.
From pleated dresses to easy-breezy jumpsuits, fun playsuits, tie and dye works, airy pants, sheer statement tops, and detailed skirts, the collection is filled with elevated wardrobe staples to make any girl swoon. Quite expected as the brand is dedicated to creating investment pieces that make the wearer stand out.
All pieces are available for purchase on the brand’s website www.irawostudio.com.
