Colour Men Perfect
BY OYINDAMOLA LAWAL
EVERY man deserves to look his best; and like the women, men are becoming stylish and fashion conscious. This season, their outfits are making bold statements with colours.
At the Kowry Kreations Media Fashion Show held on April 25, at Club O2, Sanusi Fafunwa, Victoria Island, men’s fashion sneaked in discerning colours.
Tagged Fashion Revolution Reloaded 2, the show featured creative and breathtaking men’s wears designed by Herbay Stitches and Buga Fash.
These two designers played with fabrics such as ankara, woodin, lace, denim, linen, mercury, plaid, shirt and trouser material, among others, which was enhanced with precious stones, studs, sequence and trimmings.
Men’s fashion is having a pink moment this season, and the lady’s fair colour for love seems to be redefining masculinity.
This not-so-typical colour sorts the men from the boys, as it takes guts and skill to wear; requiring men to make a modern colour statement while still maintaining a masculine edge.
This can be done by keeping cuts and fabrics very traditional and teaming it with neutral shades, such as white, beige, gray or black.
From Herbay Stitches and Buga Fash Collections displayed on the runway, models like Denrenle Edun and others stepped out in pink, cream, purple, white, blue, black, green, beige and navy blue colour.
However, these colours will benefit any gentleman concerned with style as they are making surprise comeback and show no signs of stopping in the near future.
