Patches Blazer

View Size Guide
  • Insider Notes

    • NKWO’s aptly named Patches Blazer is made from panels of upcycled tonal-blue denim to create an artisanal, patchwork effect—indicative of the designer’s innovative approach to sustainability. The oversized silhouette has narrow lapels and angled flap pockets that keep it looking sharp, while the unexpected detailing at the shoulders adds a playful touch of volume. Balance the boxy proportions with sleek skinny jeans, adding patterned accessories for a decidedly modern finish.

Sustainable brand NKWO relaunched in 2012 in Nigeria, with a focus on the preservation of traditional craft while curbing the damaging effects of textile waste. Each ready-to-wear piece is crafted using traditional West African weaving, beading, hand-dyeing and embroidery. The designer created her own fabric—using a modern strip weaving technique—dubbed “Dakala.” This hand-loomed upcycled fabric has a distinctively rich feel and is featured in each collection.
