On The Street… Nana Boateng And Mory Kaba

The thing that this photo doesn’t capture is just how cool the shoes were that Nana was wearing.

They had the shape and detail of a proper wingtip crossed with a white leather trainer with velcro closure. Very cool, very trad/punk.

    The coat with the fur collar is fantastic. I am currently obsessed with fur in menswear, such dangerous territory yet when done will amazing.

    Does anyone know who might have made this coat? And what about the “slim trench” on the guy on the corner of Greenwich and Little W 12th?

    Nana designed the coat he is wearing and funny enough the guy in the “slim trench” also designed the coat he was wearing.

    I will have more on Nana next week.

    These guys kick total ass. I only wish I had the panache to do what they did.

    Excellent…..on both fronts! I am a big fan of Ozwald Boateng, and very interested to know more about Nana and his work.

    A little bit suprised that Mory isn’t wearing a pocket sqaure!

    By the way, the shoes Nana is wearing are swear shoes (, I am a very big fan of their ‘Dean’ range!

    Usually I look for some kind of flaw within someone’s outfit, although I am unable to find any fault with either of these gentlemen. Truly a great find, inspiring in fact. Little details like the shoes really give desire for one to break the rules for oneself. Great stuff.

    Impresive! Nana Boateng and the Great Mory Kaba. Is there a colaboration in the air? Eredi Boateng?
