Lola Faturoti's S/S 2011 is endlessly stunning. Vibrant leaf motif prints on silk transform simple, unfussy silhouettes alongside a flurry of colour, a distinct touch of Mali by way of mudcloth print and a fluidity and playfulness that makes us long for Spring. Our highlights are African Print re-invented on jersey, silk & chiffon, the scrumptious colours, a fair helping of embellishments and the spectrum of shapes and lengths. Our must-have piece? This intense kimono jacket.
One or two of these looks invoke a sense of deja vu from past collections (the use of pleating and African Print on multiple mediums, for instance) -- signature elements, perhaps? If it ain't broke...
Absolutely fantamazing. Visit Lola Faturoti's website here and stay connected via Facebook and Twitter here and here respectively.
