Ikiré Jones' Dandy Sapeurs

Menswear label Ikiré Jones, designed by Walé Oyéjidé, collection for Spring/Summer 14.

Menswear brand Ikiré Jones unveils their latest collection just in time for spring. Inspired by his Nigerian roots, designer Walé Oyéjidé's garments perfectly blend different signatures and techniques. As the label states, "all of the pieces in the collection rely on West African aesthetics while remaining rooted in Italian tailoring and traditional English textiles" — Oyéjidé certainly knows how to mix and enhance all the different cultures he's immersed in. For this Spring/Summer 14 collection, he draws inspiration from both African culture and European art from the Medieval era. It's a bit different from his previous collection and we love the army of dandy sapeurs in the lookbook.
