My day was officially made since immediately I saw the Obsidian Lookbook. Lucky me, a friend already got me a piece from the collection as a birthday gift. *Smiles*. I must say this- This is a very creative collection; infact, the best yet from Obsidian. The detailing, good use of fabrics and overall uniqueness of the designs in the collection is just amazing. Great job Isoken!!!
The Nigerian based brand- Obsidian just participated in the 2013 Pitti Immagine Trade Fair in Florence Italy, represented by the creative director- Isoken Ogiemwonyi. The best way to keep us hooked on the Obsidian addiction was to dish out their Spring/Summer 2013 Collection titled “Wanderlust”
The collection was first showcased in October, during the 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week.
“Wanderlust” explores the passion for exploration, and intrigue of the Obsidian woman through a modern blend of textures and interesting details.
In imagining the joys of discovery, Creative Director, Isoken Ogiemwonyi embraces different textures, shapes and colors. We are presented with fluid asymmetrical hemlines, Grecian inspired floor-length dresses and structured peplum dresses. The collection transitions from metallics to dark and soft hues in lace, velvet and silk textures which are infused with intricate bead work, and “skeletor” detail which adds a playful and edgy feel to some of the designs.”
