William Okpo Spring/Summer 2013

September 25, 2012

I have been bombarded online  with all the various Fashion Week updates but I am going to try and take my time writing about the various collections that caught my eye.

Nigerian-American sister designers Darlene and Lizzy Okpo launch their fourth season at New York Fashion Week with their label William Okpo.

I have been tracking the sisters (and their hair) for the past two years and I am impressed with the growth and maturity shown in every collection. The Spring Summer 2013 collection points in a minimalist direction with denim ruling the day. The colour palette of the collection is quite refrained with basic hues such as brown, orange and blue Рhopefully signalling an end to the bold colour-blocking trend that has been dominant in the past two years. With simple detailing of polka dots and decorative collars adding a touch of spark.
