Newcomer; Russell Solomon unveils a blend of urban meets formal pieces for new Fall 2017 collection 'Skin'.
The new cult menswear brand takes on street, urban meets formal mix to create contemporary staples for the modern man with interesting details on soft wool, polished cotton, nylon and Italian linen to craft designs for the stylish man.
The eponymous brand owned by Gabriel Solomon who doubles as the creative director, a menswear stylist turned designer takes a cue from urban pop culture, styling Nigerian celebrities influenced by pop culture and staples for the cool kids.
Seen evidently in trenches/coats, onesies, matching track set, fitting pants, sheer and hand knitted details on shirts, interesting details on onesies, detailed suits and more urban slouchy fitting pieces.
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.
The collection employs the obvious fabircs and details "to attempt a creation of sorts inspired by the likeness of God's own greatest creations" Gabriel Solomon mused about the entire collection.
