If you love prints then you just might love Ife’s Closet’s latest collection titled ‘My Heart Skipped A Beat In Cuba.’
The British-Nigerian sisters Titi and Tinuke Ukrinamemen were apparently inspired to create their Spring/Summer 2017 collection after their first trip to the timeless capital of Havana, Cuba.
According to the sisters…
“Cuba was a breathtaking experience of culture, colour and style that unexpectedly inspired our latest collection. Experiencing and watching the dancers in the taverns of the historic town of Trinidad, women dressed in Bata Cabañas and gélés in the squares of Habana Vieja to men in traditional Guayabera, smoking tobacco whilst playing checkers on the bay of Cienfuegos. The more we walked the streets of Cuba making memories of each cobble and skirmish of rust and colour, it was with each moment that the collection sprang to life. My Heart Skipped A Beat In Cuba is a clash of twists and turns; it’s feminine and vibrant, mixed with old favourites with new dimensions,” said Tinuke Ukrinamemen.
The collection features a20-piece assortment of high fashion and high energy ready to wear pieces through a burst of colourful and rich vintage prints.
It includes slimline dresses and tops with exaggerated silhouettes, peplum and layered skirts and jumpsuits.
The collection is available at www.ifescloset.com
The Kach Me If You Can Showroom created by US celebrity wardrobe stylist Kanayo Ebi now houses the collection.
