Suits, Blazers & Kaftans for the Modern Man! View the Kimono Kollection Campaign

Kimono Kollection - January 2013 - BellaNaija011BellaNaija Style spotted Kimono Kollection, a label headed by Hakeem Balogun at the 2012 edition of Music Meets Runway. With contemporary Nigerian menswear, there often seems to be a disconnect between what is presented and what a Nigerian man would actually wear. This is certainly not the case with Kimono Kollection. The brand creates blazers, suits and kaftans for the young upwardly mobile Nigerian men.

According to the brand’s designer – Hakeem, “Kimono Kollection is not an inherited label or venture. It is a label cultivated to cater to the needs of the modern man. Whilst our structured tailoring adheres to the principles of and the immaculate tailoring of a bygone age, the brands appeal is to the diverse, multi lifestyle of the modern day gent. My particular passion for fashion was bred during my university years in the United Kingdom. A small business that started with the creation of a few tunics, suits, trousers,blazers and natives for my contemporaries quickly expanded to become the label of choice for the Lagos corporate businessman as well as the elegant dapper don.

Check out the Kimono Kollection’s recent campaign shot by TCD Concept.

  • Ngozi January 22, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    These look soooo beautiful but why is there a need to crest everything these days! The suits without the crests are classy!

    • Ada January 22, 2013 at 4:47 pm

      You took the words right out of my mouth… The fit of the suits are superb!! But crest AND pocket squares?? Really? It’s a little too much to have both on one outfit and a little distracting too….but besides that Kimono has my vote. THIS is MY OPINION , no one has to agree with me and I’m also NOT hating.

  • florence January 22, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    beautiful,i think i’ll get something of such

  • cynthia January 23, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    You know what i have noticed? When something is really good, people praise it. People dont hate all the time as we are led to believe. So I guess when the comments are somewhat negative, designers or business people should listen, sift the wheat from the chaff, go back to the drawing board and adapt. Well done to Hakeem Baogun for getting favourable comments from BN commenters, an admirable feat me thinks.

  • Jet January 23, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    Azzin! I am speechless hot models in well tailored outfits.

    God is on the throne!!! See hotness, got me smiling like I just won the lottery.
    I love this collection!!!! Also like that not everything has a crest on it….I appreciate simplicity, nothing is over the top. No funny colours or combinations, strictly for the grown and sexy. Well done Mr Balogun
