The pieces are trendy yet timeless as the flattering fit they come, the sensual chic details they feature and more are as on trend as they can be timeless.

The brand’s pieces features luxurious yet practical pieces, and aims to be on-trend yet timeless.

"The collection is a fusion of Western and Nigerian styles, fusing a mix of ankara, crêpe, organza and striped shirting. Taking its inspiration from Nigerian women and their different personalities, the brand seeks to provide women with pieces for every mood: from simple and elegant, to sexy and fierce, everything that embodies the Alainé woman.

"Alainé (pronounced ah-leyn) channelled its passion for the richness of african fabrics and styles into creating a collection that cuts across cultural divides. The focus of the range is its Faux Wrapper; skirts and dresses sewn to give the illusion of an iro, without the hassle of tying a traditional one" the brand says about the collection.
