Womenswear brand Alainé has released its new collection tagged, VIRGO; a range of pieces featuring a new spin on the traditional Nigerian womenswear classic, the iro and buba.
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 collection is a fusion of Western and Nigerian styles, fusing a mix of ankara, crêpe, organza and striped shirting.
Popular makeup artist, Anita Adetoye of Anita Brows serves as the brand’s muse for the new collection.
