Menswear designer; Adebayo Oke-Lawal makes an edgy poster boy for the debut cover of 'A Nasty Boy'.
The top menswear designer and creative director of Orange Culture covers the first ever edition of the publication pushing style boundaries in vibrant pieces from his menswear brand; Orange Culture with tinted hair for the cover spread.
A Nasty Boy (www.anastyboy.com) is a new radical agenda-setting Nigerian fashion publication that joyously curates the best of Nigerian fashion and pop culture, catching whiff of the underground while staying true to the mainstream through the eyes of young discerning millenials.
British/Nigerian menswear designer and stylist Tokyo James was the creative director of the shoot for the publication found by Richard Akuson; a former fashion journalist at Bellanaija, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan who editorially directed the shoot.
"Adebayo makes the perfect cover boy due to his out-of-the-box approach to fashion and his ability to stay relevant at the pinnacle of the Nigerian fashion industry while paving the way for tens of young boys and girls looking to have careers as impactful as his. Just like 'A Nasty Boy', Bayo appeals equally to the underground as much as he does to the mainstream with a cult millenial following that makes him a vision of the digital age. Today we celebrate him and everything that he's achieved and helped create through his larger-than-life body of work" Akuson shares about the debut cover star.
