As soon as a brand steps out of production and design, aesthetics becomes the most important thing in terms of connecting with the consumer, and the guys over at BLKKANGAROO have executed this quite well with their spring/summer 15 collection. At first glance it’s quite easy to tell this brand easily separates itself from the its peers with a well thought out  collection. The jute bag inspired over sized t shirts are sure to make a revenue splash. The statement rope sandals that I wouldn’t mind having in red is also sure to catch fire, i am a bit curious as to how they will feel on your skin after hours of wear. This Nigerian based brand left nothing to chance, every item seems to fit into the fresh African aesthetic that the brand identifies itself with. From fit to detail,

CONVENIENTLY BEIGE

IMG_1480As a kid,my parents thought the classic movie channel was a better suite than the action channel, which flooded it’s time slots with all my favorite bone snapping movies starring Steven Siegel. I complained bitterly at the time, but now I’m sort of grateful, considering everything I picked up from watching all the great actors who have managed to come back to life via tumblr, making me feel I am retweeting photos of old friends. My time spent behind the black box has definitely helped my journey into classic menswear, I think it’s the reason my idea of colour in a man’s wardrobe has stayed so conservative. I skipped the matching pocket square and tie phase really quick to a more confident space, where my interest fell on quality and a solid appreciation for “what works effortlessly”. I unconsciously picked up on the colour work of the men I religiously watched for hours growing up, due to the absence of colour in majority of the classic movies I enjoyed watching, infusing too much of colour has never been my cup of tea; it often feels like I am trying too hard. The Classic movies I was

EYES #6, THE WATCHER

IMG_164n3 Eyes are the organs of vision. As basic as that sounds i find the eyes to be open of the intriguing and complex part of the human body. In portrait photography it’s encouraged to focus on the eyes, simply because it usually forms the focal point of the image, an eye in an eye.Over the years I have pretty become very obsessed with the human eye, especially in captured images. The eye authenticates emotion displayed in images, for example, it’s easy to spot a manufactured smile from a real one from the subject’s eye. I find the eye more intriguing when the subject has a blank expression, it automatically becomes a blank canvas with which you can paint any thought or emotion for the subject. I will be featuring 50 photographs under the theme project named EYEs, 20 of which will be available for sale upon request when the project is completed. Thank you. 

THE BOXING TOWN.

LITTLE BOXERS BY ALLEN COLEMANJames town, the birth place of seven world boxing champions, has bestowed on itself the duty to keep boxing alive in a country dominated by soccer. Situated in Ghana and the east of Accra, the town has become home to boxing, almost every renowned boxing export Ghana has had, came through this town. The town is dominated foremost by fishing and then boxing, unfortunately fishermen do not get to fly the world and appear on television, so the the youth have taken to boxing as a ticket out. During the just held arts festival, ring ropes formed by an excited crowd, gave way to a street bout for the town’s beloved  “little boxers”. Standing at an average height of 3″ feet, these

CUT OFF JACKETS & HORSE BIT LOAFERS

IMG_8598

Slowly I am finding my step in the casual wear section. For years I have struggled to really settle in with my casual wardrobe, it’s been quite a hassle especially from the kind of the street wear background that i got sucked in at an early age. Lately i find comfort mixing the edge i inherited from street wear into my sartorial wardrobe, personally i think the balance defines me perfectly.

#THETiESTORY, LORO PIANA

loro pianal 4 solid navy blue ties and I am still out here catching the blues. I know you asking yourself, “does he really need to keep buying the same thing over and over again?”. The trick with navy ties is that they always come in a different hue of blue, and if you happen to be one who cares about matching your blue right down to the hue then you understand my obsession with these beauties. Personally I hate pairing navy ties and navy suits with different hues, in my opinion it mars the cohesion of the ensemble, so I try as much as possible to pick up ties that work well with the blues in my wardrobe.
