Okay, so I must admit, although I am already familiar with the talented designer of this label... that reality has nothing to do with the fact that his clothes are right-up-my-alley!!!
For Spring/Summer 2012, Kelechi Odu showed an exquisite array of supple fabric with strong and muted colors, finely-tailored in the most masculine way. My immediate response was, "re-luxed," which is a phrase I coined a few years ago, that basically defines 'relaxed-luxury.'
The inspiration for Odu's collection, was an imagined Fela Kuti (alive and well), retired but still rebellious, receiving of admirers and new found revelations, amongst his dwelling; a man of means. Acquaintance aside, Odu did a masterful job at interpreting a theme and seeing it all the way through to the runway... my hope is that this process goes all the way through the selling floor, as well ;-)
