African Flava

Gwen's Label L.A.M.B has always used a bit of an african print in her designs. This is not always an easy look to pull off, the colored patterns are strong and vibrant and head to toe print doesn't always look as good on. African influence on the catwalk was a major theme back in spring 2008, with Junya Watanabe's famous floor length dresses and fantastic head baskets. It is to no surprise then that Mathew Williamson would take note and make extortionately priced scarves in blues, yellows and print frenzy. Emma, below, shows us how to rock this look, with her psychedelic print scarf bought in a flee market in Kenya.
