It was only a matter of time before celebrities caught up with the year fashion-wise. Last week, Black male celebrities around the globe pulled out all the stops and took menswear to the next best phase. Style risk-takers ruled from the stadium in New York to the streets in Nigeria.
To the Brooklyn Nets and Indiana Pacers game, American basketball player, Iman Shumpert looked hip in his John Geiger hoodie and sweatpants set. Shumpert’s most alluring clothing piece of that ensemble has to be the eye catching grey Louis Vuitton puffer jacket which he wore over the black sweat set. To provide an exciting new verve to the look, he complemented the look with a pair of John Geiger sneakers. With this fit, Iman showed us just how to finesse the NBA style.
2021 has just begun but it has already proven to be a big year for South African music producer, Prince Kaybee who has been promoting his soon to be released album “The 4th Republic” and also recently announced that he worked on the soundtrack album for the “Coming to America” sequel. The celebrity disc jockey looked icy in the three-piece winter wear he adorned. He balanced the sportiness of the look with a pair of black boots which added a youthful touch and complemented the neutrality of the outfit.
In Nigeria, fashion designer Adebayo Oke-Lawal offered us his version of street style goodness. Dressed in a pair of black shimmering pants, which he paired with a matching metallic silver shirt, he opted for a chain-link sling bag and a pair of black leather jodhpur boots. A totally debonair yet practical look.
As the week progressed, the menswear looks flaunted by Black male celebrities around the world grew in voguish capacity, and we’ve curated the best of the best to inspire you.
