It’s not often that you find a unique visionary in fashion that marches to their own tune. It’s not uncommon to find that designs just tend to meld together, and you really cannot tell the brands apart because they all share some of the same classic styles. A true visionary thinks outside of the box to create things that are truly incredible. The fashion industry today needs more revolutionaries and fewer individuals that wish to be carbon copies of designers they admire. Luckily, there is a fashion house that is looking to change all the rules in fashion as we know it. The status quo was meant to be redefined, and these two artists decided they were going to be the ones to do it.
When Walé Oyéjidé and Sam Hubler formed a partnership, they wanted to do something that was incredible and unique. Walé Oyéjidé is a designer/afrobeat musician/attorney who teamed together with Sam Hubler, who is a musician/bespoke tailor, and they created Ikiré Jones. These are two artists with very distinct talents that combined their talents together to do some incredible things within the fashion industry. They think outside of the boxes that others want to keep them in, but they refuse to and what comes from that process is quite magical. They want to stand out, and they succeed at their goals.
It can be quite challenging to make clothes that are both adventurous and elegant but yet Ikiré Jones seems to accomplish this feat easily. These are two men that want to not only create simple pieces but want to make sure that every item that they put out tells a story that is individual to that piece. They want each piece to have its own distinct identity, and in turn, those identities be matched with each of their individual customers. Not everyone will appreciate a genuine beauty of their work, but the ones who do will be greatly pleased by the items that they receive because the pieces are as unique as they are.
