Christie Brown A/W 13 Collection

The new Autumn/Winter 13 collection from label Christie Brown by Aisha Obuobi.

Ladies, Christie Brown did it. Feminine, elegant, oversized, high-waisted prints, patterns, and well-fitted pieces —  every detail has been carefully designed to wrap you in the perfect outfit for any kind of event. It's a delight to discover each piece and see, picture after picture, the incredible work achieved on this new Autumn/Winter 13 collection called Dure. Throughout the entire lookbook, the aim was clearly to find the best solution in every situation and the result is simply stunning. Designer Aisha Obuobi brought her own signature with an ultra feminine feel, mixing unthinkable prints and patterns together and finding a balance between femininity and masculinity,  at times. Maybe it's the reason for the appellation"dure" which in french means hard. Scroll through the gallery with the 18 looks.
