Albino Teodoro’s spring mood board was filled with images by Viviane Sassen and featuring a range of African and African-American women. Their bold look and proud attitude inspired the designer’s spring collection, which exuded modern elegance.
Playing with sumptuous silhouettes, Teodoro designed gowns and tops crafted from a range of fabrics spanning from a technical cotton poplin to silk faille and more lightweight silk voile, added draped, knotted details at the bodice. The roomy shirtdresses were punctuated by asymmetric ruffles, while a gown was embellished by a charming jacquard forest motif.
The concise lineup and restrained color palette — neutrals juxtaposed with lively purple and red shades — included chic ballerina-inspired frocks and silk jacquard jackets.
