Who: Teni, Aba and Tiwa Sagoe
What: A broad selection of separates, from sultry, structured blazers to fun, flirty crop tops crafted from waxed print fabrics.
Why: The answers to ‘Why, Clan’ are too many to list. But let’s stick with the most substantial: this trio of sisters hail from Nigerian fashion royalty. Their mother, Deola Sagoe, is one of the most celebrated and successful designers on the continent – and it shows. Clan’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection was more sophisticated and sultry than we expected to see from teenagers. While the strong, boxy shoulders paired with tight knee-length skirts felt a little reductive, it was still a statement of their talent. We look forward to seeing more from this sister act.
