For the Modern Man who Loves Agbada – Ugo Monye presents “The Reale Collection”



Self-proclaimed tailoring company Ugo Monye is one of Nigeria’s top fashion brands, known for its trendsetting styles and attires designed exclusively for fashion forward individuals.

The pieces from the rising brand have been worn by a handful of celebrities including Jidenna, Joke Silva, Alex Ekubo, Gbenro Ajibade among others.

The Reale Collection is a three-piece robe collection inspired by the Agbada – a Nigerian traditional attire. Reale is an Italian word meaning Royal, and it encapsulates the essence of the collection.

A lot of men find it difficult to wear and handle Agbada due to its bulky nature but this collection introduces the open robe concept which is simple and stylish.

The Reale collection is a fusion of silk, cotton and wool fabrics. It’s for the bold, ambitious and strong man who is all about tradition yet desires comfort and style.

    YES! I am here for this. Finally, someone who really knows how to move the agbada into the 21st century. Fantastic!

    Please help a sister out – could you also deconstruct and reinterpret the female agbada? No one seems to have gotten it right yet.

      Which one is Toyin?
      Both men took sexiness to the next level.
      This designer deserves an award. It’s so crisp, well tailored, smooth and very classy. I’m loving it. Very beautiful.
