FAB Lookbook South Eastern Nigeria Inspires Prelude AutumnWinter 2014 Collection From U.Mi-1 Label (1)Describing the new collection, “Prelude is inspired by the Ibos, an ethnic group of south-eastern Nigeria. The collection incorporates Ibo design aesthetics: jackets are adorned with rich velvet; shirts are embroidered or cut to mimic the customary sash slung over shoulders by men of age; striped jumpers borrow from the Ibo woollen hat add to the ensemble. There is an emphasis on interpretation, evident also in the hues of rust, navy and black. The beauty of the collection lies in its familiarity – immaculately tailored items, clean lines and delicate tones; its originality shines through the strength of what we know.”
