Arise Magazine Fashion Week Style Report: The Okunoren Twins and Hawt Menswear

The Okunoren Twins

Neks2u is officially in love! The Okunoren Twins put in the "i" in minimalism for men. Their personal style is clean and sharp and it transcends into this collection. The tailoring is sleek and the craftsmanship is excellent. The show opened dramatically with monks swinging incense, walking back and forth the runway, leaving the audience at the edge of their seats the entire time. "You haven't seen anything yet", promises Taiwo, as I caught up with them afterwards for a little chat. The Twins  are able to play around with the traditional gentleman look, yet have added little twists, from textured lapels to waist belts and velvet ties, they were able to create a unique style for the grown ass man.

Yes those thighs are real and no I do not have his number.
