The menswear brand got inspired by the popular Nigerian/Yoruba signature traditional attire; 'Agbada' to create a collection centred around a versatile 3-piece robe.
The REALE by Ugo Monye collection features 'agbada' styled kimono look layered over matching set. The pieces feature intricate detailing/stitching and embellished clasp/bold closure to keep the look in place.
The pieces definitely look like ones to save men the hassles that come with layering/adjusting the look at intervals while making it more appealing, modern, minimalist and clean.
"The REALE is a fusion of silk, cotton and wool fabrics. It’s for the bold, ambitious and strong man who is all about tradition yet desires comfort and style" the brand reveals about the collection.
On the concept for the collection, a rep for the brand shares; "A lot of men find it difficult to wear and handle the Agbada due to its bulky nature but the REALE introduces the open robe concept which is simple to wear yet stylish".
"REALE is an Italian word meaning 'Royal', encapsulating the essence of the collection" the brand shares.
