A men's clothing brand that was created by Niyi Okuboyejo, 'Post Imperial' often draws from its founder's culture.

For its Fall/Winter 2016 line, it takes inspiration from rural Nigerian landscapes specifically -- while paying tribute to how those who live there interact with it. Keeping this in mind, Post Imperial utilizes material that's infused with contrasting colors of various tones. In doing so, it aims to reflect different parts of the land and the value each holds in human survival.

For example, the menswear label intermingles tones of blue and beige with floral patterns -- symbolizing water, land and plant life in an abstract way. With this, the Fall/Winter 2016 Post Imperial collection is both vibrant and modern -- taking from its founder's roots and adapting its inspiration.
