Guest Nation IKIRÉ JONES // Walé Oyéjidé from USA & Nigeria

Fashion / Photography / Performance

Ikiré Jones (pronounced “E-kee-rae Jones”) is a menswear company that marries African aesthetics with classic art from all over the world. Each of the brand's pieces tells a contemporary story by using historical artwork as a medium for modern expression. With every collection, the brand places a strong emphasis on societal issues that affect immigrant and transient populations across the globe. Importantly, Ikiré Jones seeks to properly introduce modern African culture to the world. Through clothing, we seek to weave together a tighter global community. The brand's tailoring is done in the United States, and its accessories are printed and hand-rolled in Macclesfield, United Kingdom.
