Last week was an eventful one in Africa as many countries began easing their way through the lockdown. Many industries, including the fashion and entertainment industries, are gradually reopening, thus allowing celebrities return to their regular routines while maintaining caution.
As they return to the new normal, male celebrities and influencers across Africa are making sure to make it a fashionable comeback. And as you already know, we love to see it!
Fashion has always been one of our core cultures in Africa and our celebrities never fail to express that in their own ways. Last week, dapper looks ruled as our favourite male celebrities expressed their style in non-conforming grandeur.
Nigerian fashion influencer, Akin Faminu paid homage to one of Nigeria’s oldest fabrics, the adire (tie-dye), in top mixed print style. Wearing a three-piece suit look, Akin Faminu looked quite exquisite in the traditional-inspired western attire. The contrasting colours of the trench coat against the blazer and trouser print definitely elevated the look. He went with a pair of black leather boots to finish the look, and further accessorized with some gold jewelleries and a black fedora hat.
South African fashion designer, Rich Mnisi, gave the long-lived double denim trend his own spin with a cropped patchwork denim jacket which he wore over a navy blue turtleneck sweater, paired with a pair of denim pants. For footwear, he chose a pair of white high tops which elevated––literarily and figuratively––the look.
Overall, our favourite male celebrities and influencer got their fashion groove back and stayed true to the rave-worthy style we’ve all come to fall in love with.
