The Debonaire collection.

Hi guys,

Hope you’re doing great 🙂 .. So today i’m talking about one of the collections I’ve styled and I wanna let you guys in on some of the things I did.

The Debonaire collection is by the clothing line brnks clothing and the lookbook was styled by Akin Faminu.

A debonaire person is a courteous, sophisticated and charming person and that’s what the pieces mean to depict. Inspired by the inculcation of African prints into a variety of outcomes from the simple classy person to the daring.

The collection, embellished with colourful prints and styled to the fingertips offers an adventure of aesthetics.

The idea was to use unique African prints, make it comfortable for the ideal lover of African prints but at the Same time make it look not so African. Yeah, it’s African prints but you can wear it to wherever, a formal occasion, an evening event, casually, to a fashion show, name it, so I tried to project that to a reasonable extent.

The first look is the rather ideal formal look so I used braces/suspenders, Oxford shoes, a collar chain and a leather portfolio to that effect.

The other guy had a rather casual look, used the prints for the pant trousers with a little bit of plain detail at it’s end, the Same as the shirt. A collar tip and suede loafers as well.

We Wanted to keep the girl’s looks as simple as possible in the third and fourth looks, personally always Seen simplicity as the keystone of all elegance really.
A simple print gown in the third, accessories, neck and wrist pieces ensuring elegance even in simplicity and heels. I love a woman in heels!

The fourth was also very simple, a printed skirt and a crop top.

  5. Thanks Coco! Lol appreciate it, saw your comment on your blog too, yeah asking questions is very helpful, everybody must have learnt that by now

  6. New Lithium Polymer batteries are now being used in these guns
    which are much more capable than the batteries of the previous
    generation both in terms of battery capacity and supplied voltage.
    When you are finally ready to shoot your gun you need to use common sense,
    do not shoot at pets, wild animals or other people as this is cruel
    and will cause pain. Most guns will miss the target because they don’t shoot consistent enough.
    The snipers are used for precise fire for long range enemies
    or targets. Paintball and airsoft weapons can be used
    for different types of contests, however in America, paintball weapons are preferred because they
    don’t resemble actual weapons as much as the airsoft models do.
