Chances are you’ve seen the photos and video clips (Instagram for the win!) from Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) by now. Our task, then, is simply to wade through the glorious footage, identify the recurring trends, and present them to you as a handy guide through the highlights of S/S’14.

From adire at Maki Oh, Tiffany Amber and Republic of Foreigner to lessons in geometry at Meena and Tae, and bicycles at Jewel by Lisa, we couldn’t escape the not-so-subtle bursts of print. And for those who may be suffering from ankara/wax-print fatigue, we recommend switching camps to team adire next spring.

We absolutely adore prints - whatever the season! And to those naysayers who say prints are dead - erm...not here! What's your take on the print trend?
