I’m saying goodbye to colour blocking, despite its success this spring/summer and moving Adapt by Adjoa Osei into autumn/winter with deeper tones, black/gold accents and structured styling as seen at the FAB magazine launch show.
We are always excited to hear about new African fashion brands that present their designs in a fresh, new way and the “Adapt” collection by Adjoa Osei is an example of a brand that does just that. The newly released look book features trendy bright maxi skirts in color palettes of burnt orange and blue.
Adapt is an eight piece, limited edition capsule collection with hand woven detail.
The focus of Adapt is clean lines and classic shapes with injections of print, colour and detail. As a prelude to the winter collection, Adapt explores the different ways that smart/casual wear can be enhanced by African print.
Gone are the days when prints were sporadically featured in ‘safari’ inspired collections or dusted off for cultural celebrations. Prints defy seasonal trends, and can be dressed up or pared down. The options are infinite.
Season by season, trend by trend, I invite you to join me in this creative dialogue.
Adjoa Osei is a new-to-me designer who launched her self-titled “experimentally classic” fashion brand with a eight piece, limited edition capsule collection named Adapt. Full of hand woven African prints and ribbon detail, Adapt “explores the different ways that smart, casual wear can be enhanced by African print.”
