From the rugged terrains of Africa to the urban jungle of the city, the Edun woman is still all sorts of chic and stylish on the Fall runway. Reeling in the two worlds onto one runway, Sharon Wauchob staged a show dominated by a jigsaw puzzle of vibrant prints and playful layers.

Boho and punk inspirations collide in the brand’s Fall collection, where colorful African print dresses lit up the chilly catwalk. Silhouettes were kept loose and billowy, evident in the fifth look, which was a breathtaking showcase of fine drapery that was both ethereal and edgy. There was also a parade of toughness to the pieces, courtesy of thick coats over silky fabrics and low-rise leather cargo pants. The show ended with a simple, body-hugging sleeveless mini dress that truly took Africa out of the dessert and into wardrobe of a high-fashion woman.

The vibrant color palette infused with chic muted tones offered range to the lineup. A generous mix of animal and abstract prints is right up the alley of the boho-dressing market. However, pleated leather skirts and mini dresses also traipsed its way into our style radar. With Wauchob’s styling, she managed to bring out each piece’s distinct characteristic. With this display of taste and range, we might as well assume that boho sensibilities will be Fall’s most coveted look.
