Often i think to myself about morphing the Nigerian Aesthetic and all that comes to mind is the Practical Tribal Representations as opposed to the uncomfortable western ideals that have turned into cliches.
Sometime last year, Temi Adebayo and I spoke about creating proper hand crafted goods with Engineered African Wax Prints that wouldn’t be a cliche piece of clothing. We settled on a five panel, as some know is tough to make, which is why it took nearly a year to realize.
After working closely with a skilled Nigerian menswear tailor here in Lagos, it was realized gloriously in 2 weeks. We plan to keep pushing Quality Dry Goods that stem from Innovation, Function and Culture.
This photo was taken in the Ajah market, same place the hat was made, marking the start of the Nigerian Nostalgia Nexus Project. In my next post in the series i will have a more in depth analysis on our inspiration for this 5 panel and the rest of this capsule collection. Stay Inspired.
