#KomoleKandids Series-2; the eagerly awaited follow-up to #KomoleKandids Series 1, by Deola Ade-Ojo (formerly Deola Sagoe), for the House of Deola is the perfect completion to the Komole Kandids 2016 Weddings collection.
The Komole textile form addresses the same ideological desires that led to the development of lace in Europe in centuries past. Today, lace has its parallel, in many ways it’s usurper, in this House of Deola signature style of Aso-Oke fabric – a fabric at the heart of a nation’s identity and consciousness.
“Series-2 is to Series-1 what the wedding reception is to the wedding ceremony. If Series-1 appealed to the demure ‘classic-ness’ in the bride and bridal party, then Series-2 says ‘it’s time to get the party started’; this is the moment for the wedding guest (dare we say even the uninvited ones), to have their limelight moment!” Deola Ade-Ojo
The colour palette for KomoleKandids is a continuum from pastels to jewel tones, with iridescent sheen arising from silk ‘shot-through’ Aso-Oke weaves. Silhouettes flatter into a demure hourglass shape with floor length dresses that stagger the onlooker.
