MANday 16: The POCKAFTAN
Hellurr…Imma be honest with you, it took a double dose of God’s grace today to get me outta bed. For the first time in a long some time, I was weary of monday. But hey, its MANday so let’s smile a little shall we? Help me find it, by Sidewalk Prophets is playing in the shadows and it kinda feels like what you silently asked me to do. Find the new and emerging trends on the fashion scene. Hehehehe. So I found this trend lately. The POCKAFTAN. The Kaftan has been around for decades and it’s evolved into different forms at different times. This trend though, is a breath of fresh air.
Papa Omisore (P.O.C Lagos), the name behind the pockaftan is really doing well if you ask me. I saw these styles and I was like ‘hmmm’. Interesting stuff. Truthfully, I have never been a fan of skinny pants or jeans on men. I mean, its kinda funny when the guys join the ladies to struggle in and out of tight pants. Like really. hehehe. However this kaftan can be paired in different ways, if you’re not a
ceiling fan of skinny pants as well. I like how this gentle man rocked his.
The gladiator sandal looks even more interesting. I don’t think I’ve seen a man wear this on the streets, but it always looks dope in pictures. Maybe you should try it, and hit me up for a drink yea? hehe
Interestingly, he’s one of the designers who will be showcasing their designs in a few weeks at the Lagos Fashion Designers Week. I ‘kent’ wait. I get really proud when I see Nigerian designers taking bold steps and doing well. Against the fear. The uncertainty. The odds. Hmm…maybe the Lord is calling me into something…*rubs imaginary beards*. hehehe
If you’d love to rock this trend, the pockaftan, don’t hesitate to contact them. They’re on Instagram as P.O.C_lagos. ‘Kent’ wait to see you rock this.

Live. Love. Laugh. Look. Better.
