A Little Blue Life – The Wanger Ayu Spring/Summer 2016 Collection (LFDW’15 Fashion Focus Finalist)

share on:

A Little Blue Life by Wanger Ayu is a short collection that offers a range; skirts with wings, pleats and flare jumpsuit, dresses and separates focusing on one colour influence working through different shades and tones interpreted on a mix of plains & prints. Wanger Ayu was one of the 16 finalists from #HeinekenLFDW2015′s Fashion Focus group. 

The Little Blue Life collection by Wanger Ayu explores the tension between the idea of the color blue as hard and its potential to be soft and easy through textures, prints and frills, by drawing inspiration from some of the most beautiful blue things in life including the blue morpho butterfly and blue roses. There is an unmistakable Northern influence – reminiscent of the fulanis especially in the hair – further acknowledged through the styling.

Wanger Agu goes on to say this about the collection:  

“Blue is more than a color. Blue is life. Not just a mere expression, blue is a self exploration, my sober reflection  of things unseen, of things believed, of chaos and calm and the things that I seek. Blue is more than a color. Blue is me.”
