Entries in Duro Olowu (20)


A Sunday Stroll

The Obamas ventured out of the White House yesterday to visit the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. For the outing, Mrs. O wore a Duro Olowu tweed overcoat paired with an orange scarf, a combination last seen at the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in December 2011, here. Duro Olowu certainly became one of the first lady's signature designers in 2011 (by my count, Mrs. O wore Duro Olowu on 10 occasions in 2011, second only to Rachel Roy). Can't wait to see what he delivers in 2012!

The First Lady and family, plus Kermit, attended the 2011 National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on the Ellipse near the White House last evening. On the style front, Mrs. O wore a tweed overcoat, paired with an orange geometric print Duro Olowu scarf and black trousers. A jeweled brooch sparkled at the collar.

Update: Mrs. O wears a wool and silk boucle coat by Duro Olowu from the designer's FW11 collection. And, our very own Charlene in Detroit has spotted Mrs. Robinson's coat: the Carr Ribbon Tweed Jacket by Tory Burch.

While in New Orleans, the First Lady also spoke at a DNC fundraiser. On the fashion front, Mrs. O paired a Duro Olowu printed top with navy trousers. You may recognize the top from here.

The President and First Lady traveled to New York City today for the United Nations General Assembly. On the fashion front, Mrs. O mixed bold print and color in her ensemble. A multi print silk placket dress by Duro Olowu, last seen on Oprah, here, was paired with a vibrant yellow cardigan, red belt and orange flats. A structured navy bag completed the early autumn look.

P.S. Here's to the new season from the White House squirrel! This photo was snapped as the President and First Lady left Washington.
