LOOKBOOK: LOVE April’s ‘Oversized Tribalism’ Pre-Collection Spring/Summer 2013

Love April an African inspired luxury line, created with the modern woman in mind, designed for comfort and freedom of expression through clothing. Every styleline, stitch and seam created is aimed to make a woman feel good and confident about her self.

“This season we followed our natural instinct and creatively produced bold tribal prints. Our muse was that of historically illustrating African womanhood. Our motive was to not only harness the Love April woman’s natural female form through dramatic tribal prints but to also uniquely contemporize the look and feel of each piece. Inspired by the world history generations of women and androgyny artworks, the Love April’s collection plays on the mixture of masculinity and femininity. Our exaggerated seam-lines emphasis our cling to modern culture. Our true, bare, chic necklines keep us in the realm of ancients. Our abstracted textured prints will ultimately immortalize the classic style and feel of a woman.” -Nina Barkers-Woode
