Tuesday night at the Alvin Ailey dance studio, and amidst a bed of oranges, sisters Lizzy and Darlene Okpo showed the latest collection of their brand, William Okpo for S/S13.
With tall, teased model hair, and the twilight city as its backdrop, the collection featured polka dots, denim, and pops of burnt orange and mustard yellow. The Okpo sisters have cultivated a charmingly playful sensibility for size and fit, and this collection was no exception. From drop-crotch onesies (a look I love and have seen from them before) to amorphous crops and peek-a-boo cut-outs, William Okpo is modern, hip, and slightly androgynous, without overshadowing whimsical and flirtatious.
