This weeks Style Corner is Nigerian womenswear label Mae Otti.
SO KOKO's Favourite Piece
The fashion brand which is based in Lagos, Nigeria was founded by Oluwayemisi Adeyemo. Mae Otti brings forth it's SS17 offering, Resilience. Resilience is that ineffable quality that allows people to soar back to their original places in life from a life-changing experience.
Rather than letting failure and hardship overcome them, they find a way to rise from the ashes. In the wake of the worst economic crisis to ever strike hit the country, the designer sees fashion as an escape route to being resilient in the diminishing situation and hardship of the nation.
Mae Otti is the halo of sophistication and style. The brand retains its signature love for clean tailoring and minimalism. Working with black, gold and then ivory as it's blank canvas, there is an artsy fabric of all moods telling a singular story. Mae Otti SS17 is definitely a collection for the strong, sophisticated business woman.
