Cool Blog Alert: William Okpo

One of our friends, designer Travis White, recently turned us onto William Okpo, a forward-thinking, NYC-based label run by sisters Lizzie and Darlene Okpo. Named after their father, William, the collection pays tribute to the sister’s Nigerian roots and deftly advances the dialogue on silhouette and proportion. But what we love just as much as the clothes is the sister’s Tumblr. Anything that allows us to get a peek into a designer’s inspiration is a must-see. Here, a few photos from the blog and looks from the William Okpo SS12 collection. See the entire William Okpo SS12 collection and blog here and take a look at Travis’ equally cool blog, Fashion Has Sex with Art here.
