Nigerian Menswear Label T.I Nathan Bespoke's 'Solace'

View "Solace," a new Nigerian menswear collection By T.I Nathan Bespoke for Spring/ Summer 14.

Nigerian menswear label T.I Nathan Bespoke by designer Temitayo Nathan Illesanmi recently released their Spring/Summer 14 collection. An emerging brand since 2013, Illesanmi and his label return with their minimalist but colorful menswear. "The Solace collection references the man who, though is resistant to fashion norms, is still very keen on his style sensibility. He is that man who has a penchant admiration for well polished tailoring, a man whose style aesthetic is well coordinated in effortlessly easy notes, that man who has found Solace in his minimally-simple interpretation of fashion," states the label. Illesanmi's purpose is to bridge a gap between high fashion & streetwear, and we can only salute the remarkable designs he's achieved.
