Ifeanyi Nwune's 'Control' Fashion Film

Menswear Designer Ifeanyi Nwune presents his edgy fashion film 'Control' collection, shot and edited by The Kene (Redtown Digital).


We recently talked about emerging Nigerian designer Ifeanyi Nwune's minimalist Control collection. The menswear lookbook was quite interesting and already showed a clear path and signature from the designer, but Nwune takes thing a step further with this experimental fashion film to compliment his collection. The sharp video, produced by The Kene (Redtown Digital), showcases Nwune's precise aesthetic as it seamlessly meshes wearable menswear, a hip fashion vision and bold graphics. Check out the video below and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #ifeanyinwune.
