Outstanding Nigerian Prints In Jewel By Lisa's S/S 14 Collection

Jewel by Lisa's Spring/Summer 14 collection, designed by Lisa Folawiyo, features some outstanding Nigerian prints.

When we saw Jewel by Lisa's Spring/Summer 14 collection, we screamed YES! Once again, Nigerian designer Lisa Folawiyo delivers an outstanding collection, mixing and reinventing the use of prints. The incredibly-detailed work on these pieces, particularly on some of the aprons, is attention-grabbing to say the least. There's a cool and casual feel to the collection but, the truth is, you'll be comfortable while blowing minds. Folawiyo breaks the barriers of color and shape with one of our must-have collections for S/S 14. Scroll through our gallery above to see the entire collection. If you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #jewelbylisa.
