An African Style Series – ADIRE TEES x Adire Lounge x Jumia Fashion

The term ‘wardrobe staple’ is thrown around more times than a steak at a vegan party, but the humble T-shirt is one item to which it can truly be applied.

A garment that started off as strictly underwear, developed into work wear and is now a definitive style essential, you would be hard pressed to find a man who has never owned this 100-plus-year-old basic.

The T-shirt‘s versatility has a great deal to do with its ability to outlast trends; it’s the only piece of clothing that can be worn for any occasion, from under a shirt, with a suit, to the gym, beach and to bed.

Guys! Remember I promised to create a more casual editorial still on the Adire Series we started a few posts ago? Well, I’ve collaborated with Nigerian brand, ADIRE LOUNGE, off their new collection of urban tees to keep that promise, our timeless wardrobe staple for this editorial comes in the ever gorgeous ADIRE.

In what appears to be quintessential, these t-shirts come in timeless shades that set the foundations of any successful capsule wardrobe. What is of particular interest to me is what they represent, one has the ‘Eyo’ printed on it, the other has the famous ‘Lagos yellow cabs’. Thoroughly Nigerian designs.

For the best focus on the tees, I did a portrait session to show different ways the tee can be stled, with a hat, simply worn, with a blazer, etc. It’s versatility is really no news.

So if you’re a ‘Buy Nigerian’ activist like I am of course 😉, then this is something you definitely want to promote. Contemporary tees, but in our very own Adire.
