Ever wanted to buy vintage Nigerian designer clothing you probably can’t find anywhere else? Well now that rare opportunity has presented itself.
Specialist fashion retail store Stranger Lagos is holding a black market sale. Open from 7pm on Friday the 29th of January to Sunday the 31st, Stranger Lagos will be opening their archives of collections from 2012 to date and offering sales on the unique, one-of-a-kind pieces they have carefully curated over the years. This Black market sale comes as a precursor to the brand introducing the new labels it is stocking including JZO’s Aremo collection we reviewed earlier in the week.
The brands stranger stocks include U-Mi-1 who recently represented Nigeria at the Pitti Uomo 89’s Generation Africa Showcase, Orange Culture who represented Nigeria at the same event last year. There is also eccentric menswear brand Kelechi Odu, fashion darling Kenneth Ize, international label Peir Wu and Nigerian accessories designer label Post Imperial. Pieces from IAMISIGO’s Fall 15 will also be on sale.
There will also be other items of interest at the sale such as vintage Nigerian novels and accessories as well as an assortment of international teas and coffees. Food, games and fashion, what’s not to love about this? If you need more motivation to whet your appetite, here is the new stranger editorial, shot by Kadara Enyeasi and Ginikachi Eloka advertising pieces that just might be on sale tomorrow. The fashion season is about to kick into gear, stay ahead of the curve.
