I kicked off the new year in Nigeria but now I am back to some well needed learning in Italy for a near future project I will reveal soon enough. Finished my first masters in product design last year successfully, now on to the next one in bespoke shoe making this time in Florence.
Caught up with my homie in Milan today, stefano Carloni, who has once again beautifully captured me in a button up shirt and shorts from the new givenchy collection. The sneakers are a personal favorite I have had my eye on for years, so naturally when I found the last pair in my size I had to buy it, Mason Martin Margiela is nothing but a genius. Too bad he sold the company and it is now owned by diesel.
I have received a lot of bad mouthing for my recent outfits glorifying a certain aesthetic made popular in recent times through a rapper who shall not be named. Quite frankly I have to admit I missed the head of the nail on my recent appearances but I aim to change all that this year. So this is my Coming To Europe post. Stay tuned for more, things will be getting progressively interesting in the next couple months. Appreciate the support and kind words. Criticism is also eagerly welcomed.

6 years ago I told my parents I wanted to design cars for a living and it sounded like the most ridiculous idea coming from the mouth of a 16 year old Nigerian boy cultured to be something else more typical to Africans.

Creativity is something I think we all have as kids but many loose it to the ugly cycle of money making professions that require little innovation. We can’t all be artisits but we can however not box future generations into the backwardness of a flawed education system.

I have come along way from that kid to more or less a man. Looking forward to the next year to continue my pursuit of hapiness and impact. Side note, my new years resolution is to buy and wear primarily suits, I also need to stop biting my nails.
