Orange Culture is a brand synonymous with expressing the metro-sexual nature and freedom in every human being, irrespective of gender, via fashion.
CEO, Bayo Oke-Lawal is a maestro when it comes to creating androgynous looks that are defined by a mixture of Nigerian-inspired prints and contemporary urban street wear.
On Friday the 22nd of November, he partnered with Temi Otedola of JTO Fashion to release a capsule collection.
Orange Culture is a youthful brand with a stellar list of collaborations to date. Some of which are international brands such as Rokus London, ON CHECK, Maxivive, and Davido (The IF capsule collection).
I am still in love with the IF limited-edition all-white bomber jacket sold exclusively at Selfridges, London, but I digress …
My point is that there was no surprise when Bayo brought on JTO to add her style prowess and inject flavour to the creative process. I mean, she is already an established client of OC who loves and connects with the Orange Culture brand effortlessly.
Read on to see how the fashionista duo succeeded in serving up some show-stopping looks.
From Adire Print blazer sets and tube midis, to colour block crepe co-ords, net tanks and the already sold-out sexy KINI knit dress; this edit will secure your fashionista points and leave you looking super trendy, day or night.
Take on a suit set like Temi …
Style Tip: Rock your ‘Adire’ print suit setswith barely-there heels and a chic silk turban for a glamorous off-duty vibe.
Turn up the heat in a silhouette-enhancing knit dress
A closer look at the KINI midi dress and why everyone is obsessed with it.
The figure hugging qualities helps hide any pouch or extra unforgiving flesh you want covered. The cold-shoulder detail will always be a classy way to show skin.
The colours are super unique and the inscription KINI? is a popular Yoruba (permit me to say pop culture) question posed by many on a daily basis.
Fall in love with fluidity….
Scroll up to the start to see Bayo wearing this exact look above.
Temi paired her colour block set with a coral chain infusing traditional African heritage with the androgynous look.
The fact that this set worked expertly for both is testament to how perfectly fluid this collection is.
