Hello beautiful ones of the Most High! I hope you are all doing well this Monday afternoon and had a great weekend. WOOOOOOOOOOOW …that is how I can describe my weekend. I was hectically busy and deprived of sleep but I still had fun. I would also like to add that I am well rested now lol. Friday night I went to a church programme called Night of Bliss, an all night prayer service at church. It was beyond amazing, God is really good, no doubt about that. On Saturday I went to work and I spent the afternoon learning new ways of cooking different meals, so exciting..Dear Future Hubby, get ready! Get ready lol.
Let’s meet our Male Feature for the week before I get carried away shall we?
Hi Male Feature …..tell us something about yourself
My name is Odumesi Israel (timikay), the creative director of Royal Apparels. I live in Lagos, Nigeria. I’m an entrepreneur born into a family of 7 as the last child.
My style is simple, but classic … You know there’s days I don’t even feel like dressing up or being extra and I still manage to look presentable. So I have come to the conclusion that keeping my style simple is a key to looking good.
What or who inspires or influences your style?
Basically my style was largely influenced by my sisters. You know they always wanted their kid brother looking fly and all. It now feels like they were grooming me into what would fit their idea of a boyfriend… lol
Quiet frankly, fashion and style are diverse, and I think nobody can claim ownership of a particular piece of fashion (e.g. You can’t say I invented that particular style of suit. I think what’s appropriate is to say I figured out a better/another way to have a suit look.. cos suits have been in existence since forever, so you just made it look better). In the same vain, no fashion or style today carries an original idea, we all develop on what we have seen overtime to bring out a better style. (I hope this makes sense?).
So to answer the question of what influences my style, I would say people, events, nature, and of course styles from the past.
Never, it’s not just one thing. But if you insist it’s just one thing then it would be a suit.
What are some of your closet favourites?
I love everything in my closet but some of my favorites have to be my wristwatches. I lost my hublot some weeks ago and I’m still not over it . Then my shoes, I have a few shoes but some are just more loved than the others just like the Bible says “Jacob have I loved….”
Another stylish, wonderful Monday Male feature, I hope you enjoyed that. If you’d like to see more of Timikay’s style check him out on Instagram: timikay_. Keep following to be inspired by more male features…Goodbye!
