The creative process through the new collection was influenced by the designer's "experience in dressing Nigerian pop-culture royalties such as actor Mike Ezuruonye. This collection was inspired by the dynamism of the human nature and of God's own multi-dimensional creation. The collection at its core is inspired by men, their likeness, and God in his divinity. Accents of traditional Nigerian tie-dye fabrics are used across the collection, re-worked coats, onesies and trenches are hard to miss" the brand revealed in an accompanying note.
