Out of the collection The kihindire is clearly my favorite, a shawl collared dinner jacket with a vibrant and bold motif, this jacket is the perfect candidate for that crowd catching moment. Unlike the other jacket in the collection the Kihindire seems one with the wearer. I love how slim the sleeves have been cut, the soft tailoring compliments the jacket well, this definitely one for the summer weddings and parties.

Spring Forward

Very often, pastels, neutrals and white rules the streets in the springtime. But one trend we’re loving this year is brights: not highlighter colors or anything goofy, but sophisticated brights. Even an all-neutral outfit with a pop of bright color will do the trick — we love it all. Mixing bold color with fab prints and textures is also something we’re loving — check out the polka dots and snakeskin textures below.

Some colors we’re taking note of: hot pink and cobalt blue. How would you rock these shades?

In The World Of African American Fashion; Meet Designer Armando Cabral…

Adrian Sean:

Sometimes I literally wish I was a guy so I could wear his stuff. You know what? Screw it, I have a va-jay-jay, and I’m about to support another person of color in the fashion world. His stuff is too dope for just one gender.
