Menswear Pops Out With Orange Culture

This is about Nigerian label Orange Culture and their new Spring/ Sumer 14 Collection.


Menswear keeps stepping up in the fashion landscape. For a longtime, menswear designers were following codes and respecting what has been previously done. Now, though, we're witnessing a renaissance moment in which the modern man can be as classy, as bold, and as edgy all at the same time. OKA label favorite Orange Culture has been a step ahead– the Nigerian brand's creative director Adebayo Oke-Lawal knows how to dress a man. This new collection blends bright colors, sheer, and all well-fitted patterns. Our favorite garment? Well that's the pants with a piece of skirt. We could absolutely envision a woman rocking these pieces as well. Tweet #pretapoundo and tell us your favorites.
