Double Magazine's 70s Editorial With Nigerian Model Betty Adewole

Double Magazine released their Spring/ Summer 14 Issue featuring Nigerian model Betty Adewole in a 70s inspired editorial.

Double Magazine's Spring/ Summer 2014 has some surprises in store. One of their editorials, starring British Nigerian model Betty Adewole, draws inspiration from the 70s, highlighting prints, hot pants, platforms shoes, and afros among other details. Considering the current fashion of natural looks and vintage pieces, the stylistic direction makes sense and serves in putting black natural beauty forward. Scroll through our gallery to view the editorial, photographed by Andrea Spotorno and styled by Poppy Kain. If you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #bettyadewole.
