Wanger Ayu released her Resort17 collection, which is actually a Lagos leather fair capsule, 4 days ago in an editorial dubbed ‘Dear Wanger’, and it is everything a sophisticate would want.
According to talented stylist, The Style Infidel,
“Wanger’s most recent body of work is what I will best describe as paradoxical, so much each piece had a precisely diverse emotion; vulnerable and free to romance one another in different ways without any sense of guilt”.
And this is not just because he styled the collection’s look book, I completely agree. Her use of organza, chord and leather in one piece is particularly juxtaposing and schools you on how they blend quite nicely.
At first glance the pieces show a use of dark tones mostly which is expected with leather pieces, but then goes on to give the unexpected shock of color like you never expererrit.
The pieces are a stylish and clear statement for the urban sophisticate.
