Tokyo James a menswear brand founded in 2014 in Lagos, Nigeria by British Nigerian designer Tokyo James. This collection is titled ‘The African Cowboy‘ and centered around culture, bravery and fighting for cultural space and acceptance. “Being African isn’t the easiest of identities. It comes with negative preconceived notions that are planted in the minds of many. This struggle also extends itself in the pan African community. The everyday Afro struggle. The struggle for survival, the struggle for relevance, the struggle to be heard. The struggle for sanity. Hence the theme of the African Cowboy. This is our commonality. Within the struggle, inside the heart of the African Cowboy, we ﬁnd bravery, courage, and resilience. We are all cowboys in this race of life that exists within gray areas. The African Cowboy is bold, beautiful and resilient in the face of challenges and lives to ﬁght another day.” Credits Photographer: Anika Molnar Creative Directing: Tokyo James Styling: Gavin Mikey Collins Makeup Artist: Diana Asherson @ One League, Models: Max Van der Lecq of Full Circle Models, Francois Viljoen, Thorne Fisher & Nkosi B of 20 Models management African Designersafrican fashionblack designersblack fashionlook bookTokyo James Share FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinWhatsappTelegramEmail Naa More For You Fashion as Art: The Intricate Craftsmanship of Verde Vista by Kophi Faakye The International BRICS+ Fashion Summit Is Here & Kicks Off In Moscow November...
