I had originally styled a client looking like this for an advertorial and I thought to myself why not recreate this look and own it, This Adire pant had been lying about in my wardrobe for a while now then I figured it was about time to have it come to life. Hence, the birth of this blog post shot by my very talented friend Ibukun Williams.. Hope you take a clue or two on how to own the Beret trend

How a movie inspired my look……

When you spent the better part of your long holiday watching “Narcos” be sure to show up looking like some Columbian drug lord, the fashion from that time is captured in an amazing way portraying the easy yet stylish vibes. From their choices of fabrics, textures and colors that speaks sophistication embedded in one; one can easily take a clue or more to create a perfect modern vintage style.


Taking it back to the early 90s

Let’s go way back to the early 90s when fashion was about big necklaces and dark round shades, from the likes of Biggie, Tupac, Puff Daddy and the rest that helped reshape the hiphop game. Oversized clothing gives me so much because that’s my style area, I am at that phase where i am trying to proof to people that vintage doesn’t mean sloppy.

The Afrocentric style star series: Dungarees X Prints

Nothing comes to mind other than throwing my Ankara inspired look on, I have had two separate fabrics lying in my closet for some time now. My local tailor  looks at me when I say please just use this part as the body and the other part sleeves and wonders this guy and his irregular way of dressing, that led to the birth of this style post by yours truly.
