African inspired men’s luxury brand We Are Kings (WRK) is back with a new collection.
About the Collection
““UDO” Collection – “UDO” means “Home” in my native dialect. The fabrics used are from Cotonou, Benin. I was inspired by how much I missed my “Home” (Rivers State, Nigeria). I wanted to create a line that will make people feel at Home; “UDO” is any place that makes you feel like you belong, any place that makes you feel safe, loved, and cared for.
For this line I wanted to experiment with even more bold colours and patterns than I ever did before. I believe with each generation comes renewed style. This line features vivid colours, yet elegant with class. Men are becoming more fashion conscious and eager to stand out in style. I worked with colours that are traditionally feminine in nature. This line portrays that style has no colour barriers; wear what makes you feel great, wear what makes you feel confident, wear what makes you feel like a KING or QUEEN and don’t be afraid to stand out. Be confidence and bold in style.” – King Hector

Neck Couture by Kobi is an eccentric bow tie line. They custom design and create the tie you desire tailored to your liking. The founder Dan Amponsah aka Kobi of Ghanaian descent uses fabrics from all over the world to create statement bowties. He works with African print fabrics like the famous asante fabric called Kente, leather and some not so popular materials like wood.
“I will bring bowties back like they never left! I believe it is important that everyone has their own fashion identity to remain separate from the masses and wearing a bowtie is a perfect example of that. Wearing a bowtie shows that you have a sense of style or creativity and Neck Couture will channel that inner fashion sense that everyone has by customizing bowties to suit what’s best for you.” – Kobi
