The contemporary womenswear and accessories brand, Obsidian uses its new line, “Wanderlust” to explore the passion for exploration, and intrigue of the Obsidian woman through a modern blend of textures and interesting details.
Creative Director, Isoken Ogiemwonyi embraces different textures, shapes and colors. We are presented with fluid asymmetrical hemlines, Grecian inspired floor-length dresses and structured peplum dresses. The collection transitions from metallics to dark and soft hues in lace, velvet and silk textures which are infused with intricate bead work, and “skeletor” detail which adds a playful and edgy feel to some of the designs.
