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.

We can’t imagine spring without shorts, and neither could the LFDW designers. Thankfully, there was sufficient variety to sustain our interest. Lanre Da Silva-Ajayi gave us statement shorts, Mai Atafo re-introduced the safari short suit, and Tae offered us chiffon, Missoni-style.
