Zekaryas SolomonHip, fly and edgy designs from Eritrean born Designer Zekaryas Solomon

With lots of colours, textures and angles, Zekaryas Solomon’s collection looks tailor made for today’s hip, fly and edgy metrosexual man. The collection plays a lot with a number of colour temperatures from vibrant reds and yellows to neutral lead-greys and warm off-whites. There’s also a lot of pattern mixes; stripes, chequered greys and blacks and block patterns. We also see a lot of experimental layering, and a mix of structured severe cuts and ruches.

We had a hard choice choosing favourites but a few stand out for us. The off-white cashmere sweater paired with the white pants. There’s also the grey and black striped number which we think is the element of hip cool. However, our number 1 look would have to be the black woolen caped blazer over the red ruched turtleneck. It also helps that we can see certain celebrities rock these; Wizkid somebody?!Zekaryas Solomon
