Ikiré Jones - Designer Walé Oyéjidé - Spring/ Summer 14

We previously raved about mesnwear label Ikiré Jones' latest Spring/ Summer 14 lookbook, in which designer Walé Oyejide blends inspirations from West African aesthetics, European Medieval art and Italian tailoring. The brand recently unveiled a video from their photoshoot which give us a further look into these striking garments.
