Urban menswear brand MetroMan has released its debut collection tagged “Oghogho” which means Joy for Resort 2020.
According to the brand:
In Ancient Bini, a dialect hailing from the Former Benin Empire, which is now the modern Edo State in Nigeria [Oghogho means Joy], this collection is centered around and was created with Joy. A minimalist tone embodies the cut, choice of fabric and colour palette of this collection in a true expression of what is deemed to represent the Homo Jubiláte (the joyful man.) The unique pieces exuding Afro-Modernity in Classic Style, which is manifested as an earthy palette of white, cream, sky blue, green and black colour-blocks, broken up with bold colour flashes of ocean green, burgundy and lime yellow.
This resort collection is inspired by the ability to enjoy the richness of life and it’s experiences, and this plays a major part in the editorial shot in honour of the collection, Man and his relationship with Nature. We chose the serenity of the beach and the abundant foliage of a grass field.
Focusing on a smart yet wearable look with pieces that will compliment any metropolitan man’s wardrobe. The linen trousers can be paired with anything from classic blazers and jackets to distinctive shirts and T-shirts. The playful “EFEHI” linen short co-ordinate set is an essential investment for your next getaway destination. Whilst the “IYENGUMWENA” and “ENADEGHE” Yukata-style safari-suit sets in their unconventional earthy tones give a mature edge to the collection.S
