THE ALALI LOOK BOOK : THE INSOUCIANT

share on:

There is a particular word that jumps off the top of my head when I look at the pieces in the ALALI lookbook; “EFFORTLESS CHIC”. The pieces look like they were made for you, the modern fashion conscious but yet free spirited mind. In times like these where people are trying their hardest to stand out with their fashion and clothing choices (some have pulled it off and some haven’t), the INSOUCIANT collection represents the true essence of true style. True style can be put together even when you are blindfolded; it oozes an air of natural style. Yet, the pieces are strong enough to make a statement. There is that rarely found perfect balance in this collection. And what’s a girl not to love about ALALI? The use of rich textures and royal colours such as purple are just as tempting.

The collection is called ‘The INSOUCIANTt’, which means ‘a casual lack of concern or indifference’. ‘Insouciant’ can also be used in place of words such as ‘care-free’, ‘easy-going’ or as Nigerians would say, ‘I-DONT-CARE’. While these words all have negative hints, it is important that such insouciance is not confused with a lack of passion. ‘The INSOUCIANT’ knows what is important to her and is passionate about it, however she also knows that nothing is ever ‘do-or-die’. The Insouciant represents that freedom and liberation in knowing that there are many doors- When one closes, the other opens. ‘The Insouciant’ is an attitude to life as well as an attitude to fashion- it is easy-going, unhampered and comfortable.
