I’ve been following this menswear designer – Jason Porshe – for quite some time and like other young, upcoming designers, his work is brilliant and even more so, unequivocally bold. He promised to share the next collection – Spring/Summer 2016 with me and of course I had to share it with you. Here is a brief bio, in the designer’s words followed by pictures. The Jason Porshe Brand is doing it with Jason’s Signature Eye For Fit and Perfect Tailoring.
Nigerian Menswear Label Jason Porshe unveils its Spring/Summer 2016 collection titled “Bella Vista” an apt name considering the source of its inspiration: Italian suiting and its strong style signature in the world today.
The collection oozes class and luxury and with no doubt we aim to infuse nothing less. Aimed at redefining classic masculinity and femininity fashionably and also infusing prints into the new generation, the collection has so much Life and Drama all in one collection. We also aim to infuse all the details in this collection from the print at the back of a tuxedo down to the female zippers down and the patched pockets. The ad campaign features Top Models Wale Bello and Princess Dennar along side stars Alexx Ekubo, Ik Ogbonna and Beverly Osu.
Ad Campaign: The Ad campaign was inspired by the Fashion Stylist of the collection, Ifeanyi Nwune.
Styling: The Mod Styling continues with The Jason Porshe Offerings for Spring/Summer 2016 in typical “POSH” fashion. The clearest iterations of this can be found in the shawl lapel print tuxedos to the monochromatic peak lapel suits and the female zipper suits as well.
Here’s a sneak peek of the amazing collection!
I for one think that the fit on these suits is “amazing!” Put that in caps and picture me screaming.
