    Dude is very young so am gonna give him a break. Good job so far, but you still have a few things to learn about high fashion and good fashion in general. Like onekinafricangirl hinted above, something is missing. Things are looking good but you are not quite there yet. For one, you need to achieve that structured look especially for the blazers/jackets–> Its the difference between getting a blazer from Forever 21 (very little structure, saggy, some without even any lining, yuck) vs say getting one from Theory (beautifully made, awesome). Red pants and tee shirt look awesome though.

    The collections are nice, but some of the pieces really look gayish.

    I don’t think he was going for a structured look. The collection is supposed to be soft and relaxed and this comes through in the choice of fabric ( light and breezy), the relaxed cut of the jacket and the use of print. I think it is a very good and original debut. Obviously, there is room for improvement, but at least there were no basic polos/jackets slapped with over-sized crests/badges! The designer actually tried to design!

      When I said structured look, I didn’t mean stiff. Structured means giving definition, giving dimension. I understand the collection is supposed to be soft and relaxed and that pretty much shows in the choice of colors. However one should thrive to much top quality looking product. Majority of the collection looks good, but the blazers truthfully do not look all that great because of the fit on the models. You did mention choice of fabric and that might be what the issue is. They are too drooping (for lack of a better a better word) to be used in making jackets/blazer especially the purple strip one. Men (and women) with good body should wear clothes that compliments that body:-)Mr. Oyeyemi is learning and maybe one of the things he can learn from this collection is better frabic selection (just like the blue pant are not so good either). This just my own constructive criticism -just my opinion.

  8. where can i find the tees and shirts!

    the models look somehow but the shirt and trousers are very nice

    The shirts and tshirts are alright. Just needs more wow to them, so it makes sense buying them and not going to give those pics to the tailor to copy at a fraction of the cost
