21 Sep DURO OLOWU
Duro Olowu keeps it Duro, there are rarely any changes to his shapes between collections. In saying that, kindly note that the results are still mesmerizing, cohesive, print amazing and proportion loving. So feminine, so elegant and always striking. Lee Miller was his inspiration this season and that strength surfaced at the base of his collection.
Miller was a model, photographer, and muse to Surrealist artists, she exhibited plenty of her own toughness when she documented the Blitz, the liberation of Paris, and the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau during World War II.
For Olowu he did a wonderful thing by not being literal about Lee Miller, instead it was an homage to her spirit exact.
