STYLE NOTES: Xuly Bët//Senegal + France [DAY 1, Africa Fashion Week 2010]

Xuly Bet's was the first show at the much anticipated Africa Fashion Week 2010 taking place from June 30 - July 3 in South Africa. Famous for his urban wear, Xuly Bet's collection stuck to his street glamor aesthetic and featured a range of pieces inspired by the great Grace Jones, including a sequined hooded dress and several other hooded pieces. Latex and denim also made appearances as we've come to expect but the highlights for us were his refreshing use of sequins to inject doses of life and fluidity into the heavily black collection. Here's a closer look at some of the pieces that caught our eyes:
