Have you ever seen such a beautiful shade of emerald?
A few weeks ago, when I decided to momentarily unpause my clothing spending freeze to discover a few new-to-me Black-owned brands and businesses, I stumbled upon the Nigerian brand Imad Eduso. My friend Ijeoma Kola (who I shared here in this post), was actually my first introduction to this classic, yet whimsical brand, after seeing her rock a few of the designer's signature dramatic sleeve tops and wide leg pants (see Exhibit A here for reference).
Based out of Lagos, Imad Eduso is a darling of the fashion-scene in Nigeria, having graced many notable TV show hosts and just earlier this year, Lupita Nyong'o wore the same set I'm wearing here in a beautiful plum color. And that's just it. Imad Eduso's rich color palettes will instantly draw you in -- her latest 2020 spring/summer collection boasts deep cobalt blues, vibrant berry pinks and of course, my personal soft spot -- a rich emerald green that, in this silk satin material, positively sparkles in the sunlight.
In true bespoke fashion, each piece is custom made and cut for each customer -- sending in your measurements is highly encouraged by their team to ensure the perfect fit. And while I'm very much a dress kind of gal and will likely indulge in one of her midi dresses next, I just had to pull the trigger on this set because each piece can be worn impeccably on it's own. I mean, just picture this top with jeans and heels.
I've rounded up a few of my other favorites from the brand down below -- I'd love to know, which catches your eye?
Dee Pants Set
I mean -- first of all, this color combo is giving me life! Soft lilac pink with emerald? Swoon! And the feature detail is simply the cherry on top.
Imagine heading out for an evening of dancing in these pants! How absolutely fun are they?!
Betty Pants Set
I believe my friend Karen (of @karenbritchick) picked up this set and I cannot wait to see it on her! These two shades of blue together are just stunning -- a refreshing summer look but would also be beautiful for a formal winter occasion.
