African Love

London-based Nigerian designer Duro Olowu is coming to JC Penny this spring! I love the looks below and will definitely be checking out his line. I usually don’t shop here and lately JCPenny hasn’t been doing too well in the market. Hopefully moves like this will help the retailer recover.

This last print is insane!

Duro’s known for his wild prints, feminine silhouettes, and vintage 70’s inspiration. This collaboration is great because his clothes usually retail at high-end stores like Barney’s and Yoox.com. Also, as a Nigerian, I can imagine how hard it must have been for him to start a career in fashion (Nigerians love machismo). I see this as an opportunity to support change in my community.

Will you be checking this line out?
