Alluring! Sylvia Owori’s ‘La Vie En Rose’ look book is here.
Sylvia Owori unveiled the look book for her new collection ‘La Vie En Rose’, which was presented at Swahili Fashion Week last year. According to the brand, the collection was inspired by the 1940s era.
The collection celebrates femininity, strength and sophistication of the woman of the 1940s. This era is of profound inspiration because it bolstered women’s independence and strength because they had to fend for themselves in the absence of men who were away at war. Fashion then offered a sense of escape for the women Consequently; the fashion of the time bore a bold yet sensual, positive and romantic vibe, which this collection mirrors.
True to my aesthetic, this collection is crafted with acute attention to detail and the cut. It heavily relies on a structured silhouette, clean lines, quilting and embellishment to impart glamour. The color palette constitutes red, cobalt blue and emerald green. All this collectively represent a tastefully modern take on 40s glamour.
We can’t get enough of the opulent satin and the intricate embellishments. It is definitely very modern and suits that woman with a unique eye for fashion. Sylvia Owori has definitely raised the bar so high this time. As a forward thinking designer, we think this definitely is the way to go.
The collection is available on order at www.sylviaowori.com and the Sylvia Owori store on third floor Garden City.
