DURO OLOWU at JC Penny’s

Standard

Hello Life Junkies…

Let’s talk about a color collision then you must say Duro Olowu.

Since arriving on the London fashion scene in 2004, Nigerian-born Duro Olowu has impressed the right people with his vibrant mix of African prints, seventies tailoring, and unlikely color combos.  A high-waisted patchwork boho dress—known as the “Duro”put the brand on the fashion map, and became a cult item in 2005 after being discovered by American Vogue editor Sally Singer and Julie Gilhart of Barneys. Now in 2013 he has his first collaboration with JC Penney.

Don’t sleep Penney’s also has collaborations with Pearl Georgina Chapman of  Marchesa & Cosabella Amore.

All I can say is you know I am a sucker for good tailoring and anything with a retro vibe. I am on my way to Penny’s.  Oops it’s not pay-day, yet. LOL.

However, the line is very affordable starting at $10 -$90…I can swing that. I am not one to spend a lot to look like a million bucks.. A fashionistas’ secret weapon. And did I mention the First Lady has Duro on speed dial. WERK

The line features his signature mashup of riotous prints, wild colors, and fresh shapes applied to clothing, shoes, and accessories, as well as home goods, notebooks, and luggage.
