Resort 2023 ‘Oringo’ Collection

June 20, 2022

At the heart of Kwelaku Resort 2023 collection is a craving for the simpler times when we had little or nothing to worry about. Driven by the excitement for a return to normalcy, the Creative Director explores the emotions that come with finally being able to do all the things we’ve been longing for, from traveling to partying and even returning to brick and mortar mode of work.

Oringo means enjoyment in Igbo language and is used to depict a You-Only-Live-Once mindset,  one that encourages you to live in the present. “Given all that’s happened, we’re simply not leaving anything to chance anymore” explains Victoria Anosike.

Geometric patterns, hand dyed Kwelaku custom prints (including monogram) adequately capture the brand’s Tribal-Chic aesthetic while loose, yet thoroughly feminine silhouettes in cotton, silk and chiffon stand out in this collection.

A range of hand crafted accessories adorn the ready-to-wear pieces and further highlight the house’s journey to impact Community positively by sustainable Collaborations that showcase Craftmanship and in doing so, uphold the African Culture.

Jewel-toned solids and embellishments that elevate the brand’s signature silhouettes and an introduction of novel cuts emphasize the overall mood of this collection and are engineered in such a way that is guaranteed to raise your spirits for the more exciting new norm!
