LOOKBOOK: Kemkemstudio//The Great Gatsby

Borrowing inspiration from the 1920s  - the era of fabulous flapper dresses designed to swish and sway - Kemkemstudio's "The Great Gatsby" collection is a stunning modern re-interpretation. While there are clear nods to the era (hair, socks + pumps, shape), each piece is ultra modern, capturing the essence of  sophistication and playfulness in turn. Detail shots would've made this lookbook that much more stunning but from what we can see, the netting, embellished necklines, sheer panels, print, and lace make this collection fit for what Kemmy Oguntosin of Kemkemstudio calls "the new woman of the millennium" - the embodiment of strength, beauty and femininity.

Brilliant, BRILLIANT work! Kemkemstudio has certainly spiced things up in Lagos' fashion scene and has everything it takes to maintain a commendable brand. We're definitely in LOVE! We blogged about the debut of this limited edition collection for Temple Muse here, as some of you may recall. Be sure to head on over to Temple Muse to get your fix!

Which is your favorite piece?



Many thanks to Kemmy Oguntosin for sending them to us.
