The Igbos are again used as reference for Sonnet. Shirts and jackets are longer in order to reflect the shirt length favoured by the Igbo. In addition the sash typically worn over the mature male’s shoulders has been transported onto the back of jackets or cleverly incorporated into shirts.
Washed linens and cottons are utilised throughout the collection, a reminder of when Nigerians fully embraced the European mode of dressing. Sonnet is a perfect amalgamation of European and Igbo styling and serves as a visual metaphor for Nigeria’s progression and affluence.
