Reclusive Nigerian menswear brand I.N Official, formerly known as, Ifeanyi Nwune just released a new collection titled “Black Trill“.
The creative director of the brand, Ifeanyi Nwune, explains that the name “Black Trill” represents the ability of an African (a Black) brand to be able to create something phenomenal that can stand side-by-side with the western world counterparts.
Inspired by the artistic prowess of the colour black, the collection is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
The models used used in the lookbook are both African, a dark skin (Kevwe) and an albino (Iyi). Kevwe is an professional model while Iyi is a security man at a service company in Lagos, Nigeria. The idea behind the contrast of the models is to define the beauty of the black race and the distinct forms they may come in; and also show that however you were born does not hinder your opportunity to succeed.
