Nigerian Label Amede, has released its Spring/Summer collection called “Born Free”.

According to the creative director for the brand, Amede Nzeribe, the collection was inspired by her mother’s photo album from the 70’s bohemian and hippie era.

True to its inspiration, the collection taps into the vibrant but easy vibe of the seventies: flowy silhouettes, wide leg pants, and tie-dye, which is actually an Amede signature.

View the collection below.

Bold prints are the need-it-now item to inject some va-va-voom into minimal or neutral outfits this season. Florals are always a must in spring, Plus, they make for some much need color and vibrancy in the winter. This season, polka dots, stripes and old fashion florals are key prints for men. But lean more toward pastels and muted tones for a quieter vibe.

WHERE TO PRINT IT

Shirts, shorts and shoes are all getting the bold print treatment. So, learning how to wear the print trend. Don’t be scared to work in your own individual style, and have fun playing around with different patterns and new color ways.

SHIRT IT

By design, printed shirts are a lot more casual than their dress shirt counterparts. But, that doesn’t mean you should shun the joining of a leopard print shirt with tailored black jeans or a neon hibiscus shirt tucked into formal trousers. In fact, get it right, and the combination is all the more impressive.

PANT PRINTS

Print leg wear provides the chance to make a real statement. The same rules apply: make the print the focal point of your look, hushing the rest of your outfit. Keep it basic up top, White cotton shirts cannot be overlooked. The other important aspect? Matching your printed trouser to your footwear. Simple is best. So, look to footwear every man should own. “A casual sneaker, dress shoe and sandal will work well.”

BOMBS AWAY

The bomber jacket is one of the hottest men’s style piece to own in any season, all social occasions and even to the office. So, it makes perfect sense for the trend heavyweight to collide with  bold prints.

 

BLAZER

Blazer

Before the idea imprints into your brain, you shouldn’t really consider wearing head-to-toe prints Instead, let a subtly printed blazer provide the statement

ACCESSORIES

More of the shy style guy? Bold prints are still for you, thanks to accessories. With tailoring, neckerchiefs or a pocket square inject vibrancy, while the rest of your look is sleepy, yet chic. And old faithful  socks, as well as shoes and even a t-shirt. when layered by a jacket or blazer prove easy ways to incorporate prints. Don’t be scared to work in your own individual style, and have fun playing around with different patterns and new color ways.

Textural prints and dark coloured patterns are safer still, and can lift a monochrome outfit, even for minimalists.

“Printed accessories are key pieces to complete the outfit. Just make sure to keep the patterns on scale  and stick with one type of floral, resisting the need to mix paisley with hibiscus. “Above all, the little additions make any plain suit stand out.”

Oversized Sweaters (1)

We see lady wearing cozy printed cream-white sweater with black leggings tucked in camel ankle-boots. I am in love with brimmed black hat and matching color leather handbag.

The off-shoulder look comes with a quite slouchy and oversized fit idal for everyday use. This style is a perfect way to show off a bit of your skin. I love to pair big sweaters with sexy leggings, creating a balanced silhouette, where top is exaggerated and bottom is slim. You can experiment with layers by layering your lovely sweater on top of a dress. It looks both chic and comfy. I recommend to choose a maxi gown so it can be layered by your lovely sweater. If the knitwear is long enough, then you can always wear it as a dress. Or you can try on big chunky sweater and style it with a shirt tied around the waist. Those of you who likes laidback casual looks, then this piece of clothing is a must-have in your closet. You can either create modern cool-girl uniforms, either boho-chic looks. If you are unsure how to pull off oversized sweater this year, then I highly recommend to take a look through this compilation and find those styles what will ideally fit your everyday looks.
