Nigerian Fashion Label BigBen's 'Dapper Men' S/S 14

Kilani Ebenezer's Nigerian fashion label BigBen and the release of its Spring/Summer 14 collection "Dapper Men."

Since we recently celebrated African male model beauty with our Top 10 list, it seems like the right time to talk about menswear designers. The concept of a 'dapper man' has been floating around for ages. Nigerian fashion designer Kilani Ebenezer, the creative director of label BigBen, recently used the concept as the launching point f0r his Spring/Summer 14 collection. The pieces fully deliver and go hand-in-hand with their Dapper Men appellation. Big Ben's well-fitted blazers, floral prints, oversized bow ties, bright pocket squares, and assorted socks showcase a great menswear philosophy of design, craftsmanship and attention to detail, allied with exquisite tailoring. The result is a combination of stunning garments and silhouettes. Tweet #pretapoundo to talk about it.
