Deola by Deola Sagoe has released an array of stunning pieces for the modern bride in latest collection inspired by the famous 'Komole' collection.
The brand shared the exciting styles via their Instagram handle and they are everything and more.
The collection tagged 'Komole Kandids series 1' got inspiration from Deola Sagoe's 'Komole' collection that got rave reviews after presenting at a New York Fashion Week. The collection was created with the modern day bride in mind, traditional fabrics (as well as the customs behind wearing a traditional look for wedding engagements) are transformed into modern day style with an edge.
The pieces feature a delicate infusion of 'Aso-Oke' with laser cut lace fabrics in rich hues. With attention paid to details on each look, the pieces are must haves for the modern bride as well as 'fashion collector' as the simplicity of each look will stand out and stand the test of time.
Details as delicate laser cut capes, dresses with absolute fit, top and wrapper sets accented with 'Aso-Oke' and more make up the stunning collection.
"Komole Kandids Series-1, the latest collection in the Komole range, for the House of Deola, presents an assemblage of designs for bridal wear drawing upon the mood and romance evoked by royalty and royal weddings through the ages.
Over 12 years of research and development are ingrained into the Komole range (the original collection was launched in 2012), the result of which is a profoundly refreshing take on Aso-Oke and the look of the modern bride.
There is no need anymore to have Aso-Oke and a Lace outfit as two answers to an occasion’s fashion demands… we have combined both into one and by so doing transcended, making the new creation even better than the sum of it’s parts. The new fabric motifs and the fashions that we have formed them into elevate the wearer to princess level, while still keeping her culturally grounded – I believe that this is what true class and elegance is about, shining in the form of a glow rather than a tinselly shine”
The colour palette is a continuum from pastels to jewel tones, with iridescent sheen arising from silk ‘shot-through’ Aso-Oke weaves. Silhouettes flatter into a demure hourglass shape with floor length dresses that stagger the onlooker.
As Easter’s end beckons and the accompanying wedding season begins, the House of Deola promises a second series of Komole Kandids to be launched on the 6th of March" Deola Ade Ojo revealed the inspiration behind the Komole Kandids series.
Every single piece is complete on its own without one taking another's shine! House Of Deola Sagoe definitely got this collection right.
