Duro Olowu is a Nigerian designer that continues to bridge the gap between international and African fashion. Duro, whose signature style consists of bold prints, a retro-inspired vibe, and expert tailoring, stuck to that for his Ready-To-Wear Fall 2014 Collection showcased at the ongoing London Fashion Week.

There were a handful of vintage touches, like the prim organza collar on a silk print dress, and a handful of surreal ones, like the fur pockets on a coat. Silhouettes had a hint of Deco about them, and a recurring print—also executed as a jacquard knit—was directly inspired by the look of Eyre de Lanux’s inlay woodwork.”
