Rain & Harmattan Fashion Collections Are In! See Menswear Label FemyToys’ 2015 Lookbook – “Geometry By Toys”

Published

FemToys Rainy Harmattan Collection 2015 - Bellanaija - August017It looks like there is a new trend in Nigerian fashion with the growing inclusion of collections for Harmattan and Rainy seasons. With the absence of Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter seasons in Nigeria, more designers are taking it upon themselves to design collections more tailored to the Nigerian audience.

A few weeks ago, we had a Rain collection by House of Marie, and then Josh Amor unveiled theirs. Now, menswear label FemyToys is unveiling its Rainy/Harmattan 2015 collection.

Titled “Geometry By Toys“, the lookbook showcases a collective of smart casual pieces with bold colours that would suit any man’s wardrobe.

According to the Head Designer, Femi Adeyemi – “Sequel to the success of the brands polka and floral collections, there was a need to amalgamate patterns, hence the need for “Geometry.” Patterns and plain shapes like circles and polygons, as well as aztec, paisley, floral and spiral prints are featured, adding a soft & creative edge to the menswear collection.

Check it out!

    Nice collections, but I think the model is too stiff.

    any time I have an idea, I will just keep quite. this rain/harmattan season collection was my idea. bellanaija u are my witness when I made that suggestion. nigerian designers be stealing my ideas since 1960.

    by the way u are getting it wrong. it isn’t rain/harmattan season collection together. u can not wear the same clothes u wear during rainy season during harmattan season.

    it is suppose to be raining season collection separate and harmattan season collection separate. you’re welcome

    These look lovely, and finally someone is calling it what it is around these parts: Rain & Harmattan!

    Ewww please. I know yall have been clamoring for this rain/harmattan title as opposed to winter, fall, spring or summer collections. But tbh, it sounds so backward. What is my harmattan collection? or rain collection? No. No. No. Winter/Autumn season is a cold season, hence that can be substituted for our rainy/harmattan season. Spring/summer is a dry warm season, hence, that can be substituted for our dry season too. Its fashion 101.
    I’m really embarrassed for the designers going that route tbh.
    Anyway, back to the collection, I love! The roses on the floor were unnecessary tho, but the collection is a good start. Kudos to the designer.

      Maybe backwards is not the right language, it just sounds odd because I don’t believe it has ever be done before. With that said it is the seasons we have in Nigeria. I believe will be embraced over time if our local designers embrace it.

      Are you aware that dry season is the same as harmattan? Your comment reads as if rainy season = harmattan…

    Do we dress according to seasons in Nigeria? The reason designers from colder climes use the seasons to describe their collection is because what people wear in the Winter is different from that in the Summer, and so on. The fabric is different, and so is the style oftentimes. Nigerian designers switching from Winter collection to Harmattan collection still makes no sense, as what we wear in June is what we wear in December, with maybe the occasional sweater if you live in the north. Rainy season collection without a raincoat or an umbrella? Follow Follow culture.
    By the way, nice designs and handsome model here.

      I don’t know where in Nigeria you live but the weather does change and people wear warmer clothes. Can it be improved upon, sure but I think this is a nice departure from all the winter/summer nonsense other designers have been giving us.

    • Idomagirl

      August 28, 2015 at 4:09 pm

      *the weather does change in some places (can’t speak for all of Nigeria)

      Please tell me what part of Nigeria you live in, and if you have clothes that you wear from April to August, but can’t wear in December. I’d love to know. I agree with you Idomagirl. Any departure from Winter/Summer talk is welcome. Unfortunately, Nigerians aren’t the only ones caught up in the season description. People from the Caribbean do it too!

      For shoes, it would be undebatable. I can’t wear some of my shoes during this rainy season. I wear easier to clean ones and many people who don’t care for fashion and those who care, do not cringe at the sight of fancy rubber sandals. It’s appropriate for the rain.
      For clothes, I lived in the North for awhile and you dare not wear your short skater dresses, shorts, chiffon tops during the crazy harmattan. You see people in cardigan, denim etc. my friend that served in Plateau state used to wear a cardigan on her Nysc khaki shirt and wear her white sports top on it during morning parade ? crazy but true.
      Finally, Lagos is not Nigeria ehn. That it’s not applicable in Lag doesn’t mean that’s the voice of everybody else. That said, these clothes would not quite cut it for harmattan in some states.

    @Christian Sister, shut ur mouth up… aren’t u proud of the seasons we have in naija? must we always copy the west? The tailor/designer did very well with this creation and the title as well.. If it doesn’t suit u, pls go hug a transformer.

    Author unknown have you ever been to Jos in December? Do you know it rains hailstones there?

    Try and enter Jos with tshirt in Dec and see if you will not freeze.

    Nice collection. But I feel I have seen it before in Papa Omisore’s collection

    While am in love with the design…. am not sure this material works well for the so called harmattan/Rain season…. Would love to see what dis would look like with a material like brocade …. but what do i know!

    Design is dope though
