So straight to the first look of this collaboration. We started a series from out last Editorial .. The Adire series .. and this editorial is a continuation of the first. We’ve already seen how good Adire can look as a Suit .. now let’s get more casual, contemporary casual, Afrocentric.
If you read the last editorial, you already know what Adire is, through and through, but let’s recapitulate 😊 .. Adire is the name given to indigo dyed cloth produced by Yoruba women of south western Nigeria using a variety of resist dye techniques. Adire translates as tie and dye, and the earliest cloths were probably simple tied designs on locally-woven hand-spun cotton cloth much like those still produced in Mali. In the early decades of the twentieth century however, the new access to large quantities of imported shirting material made possible by the spread of European textile merchants in certain Yoruba towns, notably Abeokuta, enabled women dyers to become both artists and entrepreneurs in a booming new medium.
Now the amazing thing about Adire is it’s diversity, which also means that there are diverse ways it can be styled to suit your personal style. Today’s look is CASJ
I paired the Adire top with a pair of jeans, slip on leather loafers and a neckpiece as well, and there aren’t many combinations that scream ‘AFROCENTRIC CASUAL’ more than this.
Every piece and accessory was carefully selected to make this look pass a message as a whole, and what’s this message, when you think “ADIRE”, don’t just think of something ‘OLD’ .. make it ‘NEW’, this is the power that personal style gives you 😊
The jeans of course are courtesy of @jumiafashion .. There are two things I love about a pair of jeans .. one is ‘fit’, the other ‘quality’ and this pair has those two qualities .. that’s even aside the packaging Lol .. Forget whatever prejudices you know and give this a try .. I promise you, you won’t regret it 😉
And the shoes, oh the shoes 😍 .. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s a bimaterial leather loafers or if it’s because they feel so comfortable, maybe both, but I really love this pair 😊 .. and it’s course courtesy of @313eko
And final word on my top .. All the way from Ibadan 😅 .. This special Adire tunic was crafted to perfection by @adukealadire .. So just in case you have something like this in mind 😉
Thank you so much for reading guys, I appreciate your audience always ❤️ .. God bless you and have a wonderful holiday 😊
