Summer has arrived! People begin to travel and having the right accessories becomes increasingly important. In preparation for my Summer expeditions, my search for new luggage lead me to discover Nigerian born, Toronto based designers Fela Fagbure & Fola Fabure, aka the Fagbure twins. These young gentlemen are the creative minds behind Alex Folzi.
Getting started in January 2010, the uniqueness of the brand is the originality of genre. While most other modern accessories designers are making sunglasses and jewelry, Alex Folzi creates a line of vintage inspired briefcases & trunks for men and women. Brightly colored with an effortless frame, these cases are a nice addition to any outfit, year-round. Look at all the Colours!
Recently, the brand collaborated with Canadian artist Ojo Evelyn to produce a limited edition of African Inspired Summer T-shirts to be sold exclusively online. Five fashion illustrations (see below), drawn by Ojo Evelyn will be hand printed on 100% organic cotton tees with interesting cuts and sewing patterns. Which design is your favorite?
