Duro Olowu SS12 : 1950’s Jamacian Immigrants Arriving In England.

This post is brought to you by Susie Lau of Style Bubble


Printed exuberance is running riot all over New York.  It feels very strange in a city where the dwellers revere and fall to black so often to be confronted with such a cornucopia of prints.  If other designers are ticking off a trend for trend’s sake, Duro Olowu, based in London, has been in this print mixing game for an absolute age.  This time round, it was a combination of 50s Jamaican immigrants arriving into England and Renée Perle, the muse of photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue that brought about a bevy of girls sashaying in all manner of patterns mixed in a way that still made elegant sense.  Florals, lames, leopards and stripes all jostled together in expert collages.  These are clothes to be worn with a broad smile.
