Signore Fusion by Vanskere - BN Style - BellaNaija.com - 03Vanskere a menswear design label, based in Nigeria, has released it’s new collection through a diffusion line called “Signore Fusion” which translates to lord of fusion?   First off!

It just seems like they dont want Kanye to succeed! Kanye West and adidas recently released a “Turtle Dove” Yeezy 350 and 750 in cleat (football shoes) form. The shoes were first debuted by DeAndre Hopkins, but it looks as if the NFL has banned wearing the shoe on the field. The league has also fined Hopkins $6,000 USD for rocking them because they don’t abide by the NFL’s uniform policy that cleats have to have a solid base color. Hopkins told ESPN that he will refrain from wearing the Yeezy cleats in the future, unless “Kanye wants to pay the fine.”

Review Orange Culture S/S 2017 Menswear Lookbook

Orange Culture - S:S 17 Collection - BN Style - BellaNaija.com - 010

Finally someone had our complaints! Some of the pieces are quite wearable for the average male or tomboy Nigerian as separates. But we all know that Nigerians can be professional hypocrites at times, I won’t be surprised to find out that Orange Culture biggest market is Nigeria.

The theme:  adolescent rejection. Nigeria was a place before the advent of the popular gay protest, where boys or girls could hold their hands and walk down the street and no one would think about their sexuality. Which I fear would undermine of the concept in this lookbook.   Continue reading

With that said when you get the chance to wear the cool and tasteful ones, like the type Noble has on it is certainly worth the money and stress combine.
