LA Fashion Week: Oligo Tissew Brings Denim And a Lot More to the Catwalk! LA STORY LAFW Report!!
There were a few great shows at LA Fashion Week. One of them was a stand-out because where in previous seasons, denim lines dominated the runway, this season there was hardly any denim on the runway as a collection.
The sole denim line featured was Oligo Tissew line has always been about denim as a fabric piece and not the raison d’etre for the line– meaning it has a full formed collection of tops and bottoms that have serious fashion sense.
Here’s a collection of shots that shows you that Christopher Enuke knows what he is doing– not just with jeans but knits, jackets, pants, denim treatments so that they aren’t just your basic jeans– but he creates unique — and wearable– fashion that would work on both coasts!

What you can’t see close up is the pinstripe on the pants.. and the jacket is a nicely tailored piece that could be layered with a pencil skirt over a long cashmere sweater.
Waxed denim treated with metallic color suddenly loses the denim effect and becomes something else– something unique and definitely wearable both day and night– particularly in LA. Dress it up for holiday with a velvet jacket or some shimmering iridiscent halter top or drop a casual tee to tough it up as Enuke has done here.
A great coat– while I personally don’t love plaids, this one works with the tucked in jeans and it sets off the print tee. It’s about fall and Enuke clearly has a collection that shows all aspects and not just mini-dresses
Pieces work together or separately.. and he’s married colors that others might think won’t work but they work beautifully because of the contrast of the textures.
Perfect fall textures and colors– even though it’s yellow, it’s an LA vibe.
Yummy oatmeal sweater sweetened with horizontal stripes and a dusty lavender tee
Oligo Tissew at its best.. one of the most autumnal collections that actually work day and night with a true wit and inspiration that makes it practical for Angelenos and those on the "right " versus the "left" coast.
