The word, ‘cruise’ evokes travel, luxury, style, boats, yachts and summer.
London-Based designer, Ade Bakare, has designed a capsule Cruise Line Collection for summer 2016. The new collection is influenced by his constant travels between London and Lagos where he maintains his design studios and boutique respectively. The cruise line evokes travel, luxury, style and summer.
The Cruise Line has been greatly inspired by his clients on both sides of the Atlantic who desire something colourful, modern and ethnic to wear while abroad. To satisfy these demands, Ade Bakare came up with an exquisite range of vibrant jackets and dresses in neoprene textiles and adire in modern geometric and circular designs embellished with his unique signature style of wood and glass intersected with beads that sparkle.
The collection boasts of high-necked coats with eyelets that are roped with silk adire and large balloon sleeves, capes and empire-cut jackets are teamed with straight silk adire dresses. Other pieces in the line include, sleeveless shift dresses and halter neck styles done in bright effervescent colours such as neon pink, yellow, deep purple and cobalt blue.
