On a wonderful Summer day, I packed my bags and set out to make this Memkoh x MemkohMen collaboration happen. It's something I've been planning for years, as far back as 2014 but no male blogger ever came through. I always got excuses, flat out rejections or half-hearted responses. In due time, God worked something out with people who aren't afraid to share their gift with the world and I couldn't be happier to present this collaboration to you.
I worked with my friend, Obi, who typically models for fashion shows. His style sense is really admirable and I got convinced he was the perfect fit for #MemkohMen when he posted a picture of him in a trim, green suit. Our photographer, Anu was also great to work with. I'd met him before and thought he was quite shy/reserved. With his camera in hand, he was far from that. We had an unprecedented crew who made this shoot fun and even directed some moments in the 2nd look (coming next week).
For our first outfit, we decided to go with something befitting for date night on a cool, Fall evening. For ladies, a light camisole, dark wash jeans, knee-high or thigh-high boots and a rich, knit cardigan will do while for guys, a play on colors with your sweater/shirt-pants combo topped with a classic tan jacket and boots rids you of that boring black look. It's perfect and it's a great option for almost any choice of date night activity, especially when you can't decide on a dress code or if you're uncertain about the dress code of the establishment. Think about it - we can walk into a nice restaurant dressed like this or go to the movies.
I'm pretty sure we nailed it. Bonus points for wearing these fall items in the middle of summer.
Thank you for Sticking with Memkoh. Stay Tuned for Part II.
