This year, Lala Akindoju has been all about colors in everything from flirty short sets to an Adey Soile yellow dress. The actress chose possibly her bombshell costume yet for a surprise birthday shoot: a warm colored Lanre Da Siva Aso oke two piece with fringed tassel details.
With a brilliant combination of Lanre’s design and fabric from Bishod – the limits to Aso Oke was pushed further, taking a step beyond the conventional use of the fabric. Afrobeats star, Tiwa Savage has also worn the unconventional spin to the fabric when she featured on New York Times – a boxy Aso oke suit by Kenneth Ize. The Yoruba’s Aso-Oke (‘cloth from the hinterland’) is a woven textile type traditionally used to make men’s gowns, called agbada and hats, called fila, as well as women’s wrappers, called iro and head tie, called gele.
