NKILI – A Scottish based Nigerian Owned Luxury brand has launched its Spring/Summer Collection – “Seeing Beatiful Things” on the NKILI online store – www.Nkili.com
NKILI meaning “Seeing Beautiful Things” is a women’s luxury shirt making brand focused on highlighting the single most important garment in a wardrobe – the shirt. NKILI designs prints and produces the most beautifully crafted silk shirts that people will treasure. Each piece goes on a journey, from design and print to production, nurtured by the highly skilled production team in Scotland. The process of combining tonal hand drawing with traditional silk screen printing and hand painting techniques on pure silk makes each piece unique.
Creative Director, Tolani Nkili Onajide was raised in Lagos, London and Oxford. She studied Architecture at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London and the University of Dundee School of Architecture, Scotland. She then won awards and support from business organisations; Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust and Cultural Enterprise Office for NKILI.
The Spring/Summer Collection “Seeing Beautiful Things”, is influenced by one of the leaders of modern Architecture – Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe’s minimalist design style. He adopted the “less is more” approach and arranged the necessary components of a building to create an impression of extreme simplicity. By highlighting the shirt in its pure form, without distraction,the progressive beauty and craft can be seen. All shirts and Scarves are hand crafted in Scotland by NKILI.
