ASOS Africa's Spring 2011 Collection

Written By: Nani Hapa—ASOS Africa recently launched its Spring 2011 collection, and while I like the use of batik print, the collection falls a little flat compared to its Fall 2011 collection, which was much more vibrant. Here's what ASOS has to say about the collection:
Sampling a colour palette of rich tones, softened with neutral shades, ASOS AFRICA brings forth a sophisticated collection of cool, laidback pieces. Using hand-woven fabric, produced exclusively for ASOS AFRICA in Mombasa, the collection features a mix of elegant separates and playful feminine pieces, shot through with vibrant Kitenge prints from Tanzania. The collection is complimented by a unique range of accessories from fair trade jewellery brand MADE. Continuing the collaboration with SOKO, Bedi and the Crochet Sisters, our ASOS AFRICA collection maintains its dedication to providing vital employment to underprivileged communities in Kenya.
Take a look at some pieces from the collection below.
