Power Prints

No one knows the power of color and prints better than Oswald Boateng. His Ghanaian origins and British tailoring style puts him in a league of his own. Men like Barack Obama, Will Smith, Laurence Fishburne, Don Cheadle and Jamie Fox know who to call for that perfect tailored look. The culture of suit wearing differs depending on which continent you are on but there is no bigger statement a suit should make than “Whew that man can hang a suite!”

Boateng’s Spring/Summer2013 collection is an optical climax. The New York Fashion Week shows opens with the traditional black and white suit, followed by a dash of his trademark imperial purple for supreme elegance, and ending in Ankara separates. You know you are watching a designer who has a statement to make! According to Oswald Boateng, “Style is an extension of yourself. My approach is to enhance the personality of the wearer, so he has his own voice.”

The Ankara jackets, pants and shorts bring a new perspective to the world of prints and prints are definitely a must-have this spring! See more of Oswald Boateng’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection at
