Dent De Man's Prints & Sartorial Elegance

This is British menswear label Dent de Man's African prints in their Spring/Summer 14 collection.

Since 2012, British label Dent de Man's sartorial elegance has made an impact by providing a paradoxical mix of the dandy and modern workingman. The label are experts in using Batik fabrics with Javanese patterns to create distinctive silhouettes with bold statements. You can be  fashionable, high-class and chic wearing Dent de Man's African prints. On their website, the label states its passion for ancient printing methods and a commitment to adapt them into our contemporary world. Two years from its launch, the initiative has been a success and their Spring/Summer 14 lookbook is stunning. The patterns are beautiful and reinvent the use of African print. It's fresh, well-tailored and the photographs shows it well. Scroll through our gallery to see Dent De Man collection and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #dentdeman.
