The Ghanaian brand, Illi gave two very different moods for their Lagos Fashion Week 2019 runway collection. The collection started out with batik printed Ghanaian motifs on an upscaled version on resort wear. With neutral and earth-tone colours like yellow and brown, the collection feels like easy going and relaxed. Jumpsuits, shorts and button down shirts for both male and female made up this part of the collection.
The collection then moved on to brightly coloured suits and business wear. Suits were layered and some were paired with Bermuda shorts. Illi also showed some monochromatic looks on the business wear side appealing to those who prefer a more minimalistic look. The perfectly tailored suits featured wide lapels and covered pockets.
Accessory wise, the collection was made more sophisticated with sunglasses and huge leather bags for the males and small bags for the females.
Illi showcased versatility in this collection, easily merging easy to wear clothes with formal suits.
