Wanger Ayu Spring/Summer 2016 Collectionby Sonia Amoako Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 .
Wanger Ayu’s Spring Summer 2016 collection has gone blue mad.
The brand hit the runway at Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2015 a few months back.
The designs consist of cool solid cobalt blue pieces, with layers of mesh and some white check detailing. The lookbook gives a closer look and it’s all about the blue, with the collection named A Little Blue Life.
About the focus on the colour, the designer said ” Blue is more than a colour. Blue is life. Not just a mere expression, blue is a self exploration, my sober reflection of things unseen, of things believed, of chaos and calm and the things that I seek. Blue is more than a colour. Blue is me.”
Some inspiration was taken from nature such as blue roses and the blue butterfly. The attention is drawn to the bold block colour and different cuts in certain pieces. Designs include skirts, dresses and wide legged bottoms. Mesh and sheer layers add some edge. This collection would be nice to mix and match. The floor length dress is elegant and the deep plunge neckline of the dress would be great for a night out.
We would define this collection as chic, feminine and contemporary.
