Adebayo Oke-Lawal @theorangenerd is a contemporary and androgynous Nigerian designer.
Oke-Lawal is the creative head and founder of the Orange culture @orangecultureng brand, a menswear brand which has been described as a “movement”, more than a clothing line, for a creative class of men who are “self-aware, expressive, explorative, art-loving nomads”
The brand combines classic and contemporary western silhouettes with those of Nigeria. Oke-Lawal uses his design as a political affront and makes room for designers who want to use their craft to speak out.
With support from the Nigerian Export Promotion Council, Selfridges in collaboration with Style House Files released a capsule collection by two of Africa’s most gifted exports, Davido, and Adebayo Oke-Lawal of Orange Culture, for their Music Matters at Selfridge’s campaign.
Davido x Orange Culture premiered in Selfridges, London on the 12th of September 2017. The collection featured easy to wear, stylish t-shirts, tunics and bomber jackets in muted tones that work for one’s day-to-day style.
