Men’s wear came alive at Day 2 Accra Fashion Week, Summer Harmattan edition where Ivorian designer Levis Le Createur showcased his African heritage men’s collection. Having a fashion brand distributing in both cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria and now expanding to Ghana Levis le createur humble beginnings started at a teen when he began as a young tailor and eventually groomed himself to now sewing for diplomats in the city of Abidjan. After he expanded to disturbing and working for various west African companies his fashion brand has now become a household brand for a lot of working class men in Cote D’ivoire.
True to the designers background we saw designs which reflected what the African man should be in, there were twist to the typical African wear which usually go with top and pants or suit , but Levis Le Createur had a twist to the whole ensemble by giving an impeccable embellish to the pants by switching the pants to a drawstring trouser which typically is foreign to the African man who understands style from a different perspective, The other eye catching outfit from Levis was the white Lapel jacket which had beautiful encrusted crystal diamonds on the front of both sides of jacket which completely transformed the ordinary outfit into a more sophisticated modern look. Levis Le Createur sure didn’t leave out the woman as he had something up his sleeves for the 21st century African woman. We saw a fusion of the old age cape concept going on with the collection as if that wasnt enough he switched it up on us with sexy pink short dresses and crowned his presentation with an African inspired cinderalla pin-up gown.
