Nigerian Designer Ifeanyi Nwune's 'Timeless' Menswear

Nigerian designer Ifeanyi Nwune shares the Lagos-shot lookbook for his Spring/Summer 2015 'Timeless' menswear capsule collection.

Nigerian designer and stylist Ifeanyi Nwune recently unveiled the Spring/Summer 2015 capsule collection for his namesake brand. Titled Timeless, the collection once again shows off Nwune's predilection for a minimalist, solid-colored wardrobe. "The idea of the collection was to achieve looks that are edgy and interesting but very relatable," he told Okayafrica. "White, Black and Red are the only colours in the collection because I feel like they are the most beautiful combination possible in any outfit."


The Timeless lookbook was shot in Lekki, Lagos, and stars Nigerian model Peter Finn and media personality Onos. According to Nwune, "Being timeless simply means always being in vogue and not changing in fashion. This quality can only be achieved by a person with a mind of his own, a person who thinks in the box when every other person is trying to thinking outside the box, an individualist. I incorporated this idea in creating my S/S '15 collection. With some female-looking silhouettes and some transparent pieces you can say the collection is a little risk-taking and can only be worn by a person with a mind of his own, a timeless person."

Keep up with Ifeanyi Nwune on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. For more, see photos from his debut Control collection and short fashion film.

Update November 4, 2015: Watch a short fashion film featuring Ifeanyi Nwune's Timeless collection. The video is directed by Lagos-based filmmaker Kene Umeokafor.

We know that Black queer DJs from the Midwest are behind the creation of house and dance music. Yet, a look at the current electronic scene will find it terribly whitewashed and gentrified, with the current prominent acts spinning tracks sung by unnamed soulful singers from time to time. Like many art forms created by Black people all over the world, the industry hasn't paid homage to its pioneers, despite the obvious influence they have. Thankfully, the independent music scene is thriving with many Black acts inspired by their forefathers and mothers who are here to revolutionize electronic music. Here are a list of the ones you should check out:
