POC ditches Kaftan for unconventional streamlined pieces at LFDW 2016

POC takes a dramatic 360 turn from his signature kaftans with new collection launched at the Heineken LFDW 2016

POC is known for his kaftan (inspired) looks that has fast become a signature of the brand but the new collection employed a completely different story! Leaning towards unconventional though slightly retaining the playful and simple feel of the POC brand, the new collection offers more promising styles.

At the show, I couldn't place the looks in the collection- I think I was stunned by the 360 change, I honestly was expecting kaftan in mindblowing designs but Papa Omisore, the brand's creative director took everyone by surprise and I think that's a good thing.

Solid strip designs made up the better part of the fabrics used for the designs, layering crop vests matched with pants with inner vests were a thing I really loved on the collection, while I'm not a fan of the stripped fabrics, the simplicity and the daring slashes, zipper details (that come undone for a sexy male vibe) were fashion forward for me - who says a guy can't get playful with his look?

The layering (a fan of the overall styling), the pocket details,  the solid overall, the matching short set, the relaxed fit (so in control!), the crop top and bomber jacket were hits for me as well, he kept it simple and tidy and that works. I see the brand going more unconventional and somewhat daring.

POC is definitely reaching to garner a wider reach with these aesthetics and I think it's for the brand's good and ultimately explore as much as you can,we are looking out.
