NEW YORK (AP) - The Africa-facing brand Edun, founded by Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson, printed dots on wide cropped pants in blue and red along with line patterns on bright white looks for the spring collection at New York Fashion Week.

Designer Danielle Sherman said backstage after Sunday's show that the collection was Nigeria-inspired. She included large silver pendants in the Tuareg style created by artisan Moussa Albaka to help represent "balance and unity," which also was expressed in the juxtaposition of perfect digitally-created circles mixed with irregular ones in prints.

The brand produced about 92 percent of its previous collection of resort wear in Africa. It was the highest percentage of Edun manufacturing from its plants in Madagascar and Kenya since the company was created in 2005.

Sherman carried the circle motif into large belt buckles for many looks. The dot trims popped in flame red against loose black pants and jackets.

Black leather trimmed a white and gray crop top worn with matching judo-inspired pants.

Shoes, including flats, were created to match the clothes, dots included, in another of the brand's collaborations with Manolo Blahnik.

Among the celebrity guests on Edun's front row were Rihanna, dressed elegantly in white, and Laurie Anderson, the widow of Lou Reed.
