Post-Imperial is a Nigerian-American fashion label that is making stirs in the menswear fashion category. Founder Niyi Okuboyejo says that his Nigerian heritage, as well as his experiences moving to the United States have inspired his designs and collections. His collection is made up of a variety of Nigerian fabrics that go through a rare hand dyeing process known as Adire, developed by the Yoruba’s in the Southwest region of Nigeria. After the dyeing process, the fabrics are then hand painted using cassava starch or wax base, therefore giving his fabrics and overall aesthetic a unique edge above the rest.
Post-Imperial was recently featured in GQ magazine, showcasing their Nigeria-inspired collection of ties and pocket squares, one of the coolest new accessories on the market today. The collection works to redefine menswear office fashion by bringing Nigerian textile fabrics, and seamlessly incorporating them into your everyday office wardrobe. The collection is made up of flowy easy-fit pants, frayed, breezy shirts, suits and unique bold accent pieces.
The Post-Imperial brand works to reinterpret culture into contemporary fashion, through seamlessly merging rich Nigerian textiles to make super chill clothes as well as tailored contemporary office wear. Undoubtedly making the brand unique from the rest.
