iMA allen-and-fifth-Allover-White-teeAllen & Fifth is an urban lifestyle brand that says they draw their inspiration from African pop culture with a “western twist.” Based between New York and Lagos, the label tells us they see themselves as an intersection for the two cities.

 

iMA allen-and-fifth-Caro-made-me-do-it-teeWith their latest collection the label pays homage to West African TV shows from the 80s and 90s, including the Nigerian drama Willy Willy and the Ghanaian detective series Inspector Bediako. The tees pay tribute to African entertainment at its best, in hopes that this will spark an interest among Africans to curate our rich and growing culture. The label also says their allover print tee represents Nigeria’s three major tribes. For their Chale! design they collaborated with Ivory + Ebony. Their Caro tee is a play on Starboy, L.A.X, and Wizkid‘s song of the same name and the “Coco Made me do it” meme. See other photos below.
