African Fashion Week
SOBOYE will also be showcasing their SOBOYE BLUE collection on the AFWL 2016 runway.
Soboye Blue is a collection of Men’s & Women’s clothing inspired by the color blue…
Blue is tranquil, calming and moody. The color of the mighty sea and the expansive sky, it evokes the excited feeling of cruise travel and far off horizons.
Apart from being a great base color SOBOYE considered Indigo and it’s many hues as the starting point to build a directional collection.
Light and dark Denim is used liberally and mixed with African Print to add punch to a sharp collection of tailoring and separates. Vlisco Ankara is used to trim Jackets and trousers whilst full print shirts punctuate the collection.
Following on from the successful ‘Afro Dandy’s’ collection SOBOYE trail-blazes with their modern take on design and fuses their Nigerian heritage with their British upbringing…
