Take bright colors, polka dots, bright paisley and palace guard prints and you have The Londres Collection from London-based Nigerian Designer Emmy Collins.
With a reputation of flamboyancy, the designer Emmy Collins, went in with these collection and infused diverse elements, colors, fabrics to create this aesthetically pleasing collection.
In his accompanying notes, Emmy had these to say;
“Basically, I always keep my eyes and ears on what my contemporaries across the globe are doing and then bend over backwards to stay as far away as possible from them. It is absolutely imperative that I retain the originality which our fans associate with the brand. It has never been just about commercial success. It is my ardent belief that any designer worth his or her salt must be able to strike a healthy balance between commercial success, originality, details and tailoring quality. You can`t have one without the other. Frankly, the “Londres” is like a test collection but nonetheless I`m proud of the quality of stitching and aesthetics we achieved with it. I’m absolutely excited about more ideas in the pipeline for us”.
The collection, with his strong similarities to the British style of the 70s, features long blazers with gold buttons, hats, a colorful range of blazers and printed shirts and an interesting approach to casual wear.
