Year of the Bird – A Look into Blackbird’s 2013 Collection
Blackbird Jeans is a luxury, authentic and an unconventional menswear fashion label started by 2 Kenyan born designers Zedekiah Lukoe and Sydney Owino. “A style that expresses new forms of elegance, presenting itself as a modern classicism, based on superior sartorial content and creativity.” says our Kenyan based contributor Bryan Emry.
Blackbird established in 2008 as a denim line widely known as “BLACKBIRD JEANS“. After taking part in Africa Fashion Week New York in 2011 and Fashion Diaspora, they were immediately recognized as a brand that loves to make loud and proud menswear designs such as their signature Masaai check blazers and drop crotch trousers and have ventured into men’s suiting as seen in their Spring Summer 13 collection and also in their most recent collection Retro Reflection.
The Kenyan born designers and founders Zedekiah Lukoe and Sydney Owino have always been the creative and stylistic source of all the brands activities as well as the drivers behind the development strategies based on balanced growth on a global scale and focus on the core business. As can been seen in the collections both past and recent.
S/S13 welcomes the arrival of style and colour for Men and we’re loving every bit of it. Blackbird Jeans caters exclusively to men’s clothing and you can count on Blackbird’s for a wide variety of classy tops, trousers, suits, blazers, accessories, denim and outerwear.
