Eponymous menswear brand, Tokyo James has released his Spring Summer 2018 campaign titled ‘The African Cowboy’.
On the inspiration behind this collection and the brand’s price points, Tokyo James says:
“It’s not easy being African. To identify as African is to identify with struggle; its understanding the true meaning of a fighting spirit. So Africa inspired this collection and what it means to live in modern-day Africa
“My pieces are quite affordable the price point depends on the range. We have the “Tokyo James Man” line which is at a higher price point than the “Tokyo James Black Label.” For the Tokyo James Black Label, our suits start from N95,000.”
He notes that: “Fabrication is very important to us as a brand, we go for fabrics that do the talking [for us]. What I mean by that is, you can see the quality from looking or touching the fabric which helps justify our price point. For the Tokyo James Mainline, a suit starts from N180,000 depending on the fabric.”
This lookbook was shot in Cape Town South Africa because of it’s peaceful, serene and simple tranquil environment.
