Boundary pushing menswear designer – Adebayo Oke Lawal of Orange Culture is the debut cover star of ‘A Nasty Boy’.
A Nasty Boy (www.anastyboy.com) is a new radical agenda-setting Nigerian fashion publication that joyously curates the best of Nigerian fashion and pop culture, catching whiff of the underground while staying true to the mainstream through the eyes of young discerning millenials. The publication is founded and editorially directed by Richard Akuson a former fashion journalist at Bellanaija, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan with British/Nigerian menswear designer and stylist Tokyo James as the creative director.
“Adebayo makes the perfect cover boy due to his out-of-the-box approach to fashion and his ability to stay relevant at the pinnacle of the Nigerian fashion industry while paving the way for tens of young boys and girls looking to have careers as impactful as his. Just like ‘A Nasty Boy’, Bayo appeals equally to the underground as much as he does to the mainstream with a cult millenial following that makes him a vision of the digital age. Today we celebrate him and everything that he’s achieved and helped create through his larger-than-life body of work.” – Says Richard Akuson.
The shoot was lensed by emerging fashion photographer Ofure Ighalo.
