LFW SS18 : Duro Olowu and the Devils of Details

by Linda Bezos

Duro Olowu's SS18 collection finds inspiration in surrealist muse Lee Miller but it truly creates a more impressionist visual of feminity that goes beyond any surreal notion of such. Olowu's progression as an artist and designer is incremental but yet substantive as he painstakingly adds layers and layers of intricacy into his already well-substantiated template. The prints, the stripes, and the overwhelming colors add a sense of playfulness to silhouettes that are rigid and strong creating a sense of dichotomy both intriguing and visually appealing.
