Michelle Obama Plucks African Designer Bunmi Olaye From Obscurity; Gets A Coat Out Of It

When Bunmi Olaye showed at Africa Fashion Week, the world took notice. Not only was Nelson Mandela’s wife, Graca Michel, an instant fan, but Michelle Obama followed, sending a request to the African designer for one of the line’s coats. When one of the world’s most influential fashionistas take notice of a young designer, only good things can come (hello, Isabel Marant and Jason Wu). Bunmi Olaye is a name to learn — fast.

Bunmi created this gorgeous double breasted white coat specially for The First Lady. Bunmi is now in talks with Harrods to have the line picked up at the department store. Fingers crossed.

If you just can’t wait, get the white wool, double breasted coat look here in the meantime, before it becomes a major trend:

Not only is this Mackage off white wool blend ‘MJ’ leather detail coat ($366.99, down from $583) a classic winter style, but it’s majorly discounted on Bluefly right now.

You will love the gold chain enclosures on this chic Milly Phoebe Chain coat ($645). It’s perfect for work, and even to dressy events.

You will love the exotic-looking buttons and belt buckle on this Soia & Kyo off white wool drill ‘Katrina Z’ belted coat ($276, down from $395). Also – the price is nice.

Check out this week’s online sample sales. Get a classic look with our guide to the little black dress, skinny jeans, blazers, and chain strap bags.
