THE SUIT: EDE&RAVENSCROFT

This suit was made by british tailors, Ede & Ravenscroft (http://www.edeandravenscroft.co.uk/). Its of the traditonal two-button, notch lapel variety, but the tailoring sets it apart; note the gently folded rope shoulder, the length of the sleeves(not too long,not too short, just about right) and the beltless waistband on the trousers. Its these little details that makes the suit look so simple, yet so beautiful. Clean lines and well done tailoring; top notch savile row production.

BEST LOOK OF THE WEEK- TINIE TEMPAH

Tinie Tempah,shot for GQ.........i absolutely love the layering mix of the jacket, cardigan and denim shirt ,the boots and the pop of colour that the pants bring to the whole look. Great syling, beautiful result....this is what style is REALLY about- mixing simplicity with unique pieces to great effect.

WORST DRESSED OF THE WEEK

At the Soundcity Music Video Awards..............
Ummm......dont try this at home.or outside,for that matter.or even in your mind. This is pretty bad.........

Are You Literati?

So every now and then a tee shirt line comes along, any1 who knows me KNOWS im not a supporter of most tee shirt lines and i dont feel it relevant enough to plac them on a blog thats all about fashion, style and love, no matter how reputable the label is (cough D***a cough cough S****e). BUT when i see a tee shirt line that doesnt ony produce amazingly beautiful tshirts but exudes a huge amount of sex appeal, exclusivity and well class, why wouldnt i write bout it.

"Literati"



The question is are you literati??
Literati as described by Head designer Patrick Rhodes Vivour and his partner describe literati fans as an elite group of people wth a status acquired not by riches or material possesions, but rather a wealth of knowledge combined with a curiousity to attain, understand and appreciate all things inspired by words.
Literati draws inspiration from the interestingly diverse forms of pop culture; from music to politics, literati can be found to exist, thats why i love literati and thats why celebs such as MI, NNEKA, BEZ, BANKY W, NAETO C, WHIZ KID AND SHOW EM CAMP rock literati on a daily.

Whiz kid rocking literati



i luv literati and im sure u would too, check out some of their amazingly edgy tees :-)

I know it would be alot easier to just write about 1 photographer in the name of kelechi amadi obi (whom i love) but well every1 and any1 has probably done that, so today instead of conforming to the norm, ive decided to bring forth 5 amazingly creative photographers you might not know but SHOULD. Here they are , in no particular order!!

By Aniekan Gamble



Sadly my experience with love has definitely not been diverse enough to cause reader attention thus the search for amazing write ups on love begins, and our first write up is by an amazing and interesting writing i just met or started talking to, i totally love this write up, i can relate and im so sure yal can too. :-


Fast cars, big dreams


I loved you, we loved us


I had hopes, we played house


Tidal waves of stifling reality


Marinated wonders, convulsing hospitality


I saw you, we saw us


Fatal attraction’s schemes now exposed


You played house, I dried out


Distressing socializations


Daunting realizations


Exorcism’s final dance


Transfiguration’s final glance


I loved you, we loved us…


In a time now known as once

p.s: if you have something interesting to say about love, inbox me on justinadeus@yahoo.com and i promise if its relatable we'd post it here. we love you all

10 MOST STYLISH NIGERIAN ''CELEBRITY'' MEN

Loving the responses thus far and like the last im still not very sure whose really a celebrity in Nigeria, someone needs to do a strong worded article on the word CELEBRITY, some definition is definitely necessitated, until then everyones been wondering when the mens list will arrive, well here it is.

I KNOW, I KNOW, 10 instead of 30 il be honest it was hard to even discover 10 stylish men in the Nigerian celebudom industry, finding pictures became another issue, and then figuring out if they were truly or not so truly stylish. These 10 men i can say im sure have got style, the pictures might not really compliment the amazing style that they embody bt theres something different about them that just makes you look out for em on the red carpet, you might not agree with it, and i love you all for that but one things for sure, they all have style somewhere in them.


Ohimai Atafo



Eyimofe Atake


Naeto C


Dimeji Alara



Terence Sambo



Uche Nnaji

Bez


Bobo Omotayo


Omena Daniels


Dare Art Alade

so i definitely would love to know your response and hopefully ideas of other stylish men i just didnt remember to put, but remember theyve got to be clebes here in Nigeria. Love you all

So I wouldnt refer to all of these women are celebrities, but in Nigeria any person that has constantly been featured on bellanaija, thisday style, elan, fab and any other supposedly highbrow magazine is a woman that could be referred to in Las Gidi, as a woman in the limelight, some will say a CELEBRITY, or the one i hate the most an ''IT'' girl. One thing i know for sure though is that these women are amazingly stylish, amazingly fashion forward and definitely deserve to be considered stylish, CELEBS??(Not so sure lol)...still sha, u jus gotta luv em; they might not always get it right, but 1 things for sure they probably would 99.9% of the time.
