Sexy in Blue Invy

By By Kimoy Leon Sing

Although Blue Ivy joined the world of celebrity royalty via Beyonce and Jay-Z last year as its cutest addition, this collection is anything but, says fashion designer Saleem Samuel.

Featuring classic shades of blue, black and white, “Blue Ivy” gradually sprawls throughout its surroundings. In essence, it slowly reveals itself to be something larger than life. 

This is a characteristic embedded throughout these designs. Some outfits, while deceptively simple from afar, reveal striking detail up close. This ensures that these designs give the illusion of being approachable from afar, and then dazzle those who take a further inspection.

The use of silk, tulle, Chantilly lace, stretch lurex, cotton and embellishments provide a balance between slimming, tapering and exciting plays on volume. This guarantees that there are options for those who prefer to exude a discreet sexiness or immediately grab the attention of any room. Whether you’re seeking the perfect party dress or gown for that Christmas function or mens’ wear to take from day to night, “Blue Ivy” is the 

collection to have.

According to the designer’s website: “Every creation must be able to transport our wearer to another place. Fashion is one of the most accessible forms of creativity and innovation and thus we never compromise on originality. For we gauge the success of our designs with how well they can best tell a story, give a detail or provide insight into the woman or man clothed in Saleem Samuel Designs.”
