I planned to attend the moment I got it. There was no question about it. I mean, it's Diesel! Their clothes are great. No, their clothes aren't just great, they're banging. And they're not banging in the Oh My God! I'll need a mortgage to afford that way, they're banging in the yeah it may pinch a bit but they'll last forever way. I bought my first pair of Diesel jeans when I was 17. I have four pairs now. I think I'll do a blog about all of them tomorrow. That sounds like it'll be fun doesn't it?
As the invitation says for those of you who bothered to read it, they were unveiling their new fashion film shot by Rezze Bona and creatively and artistically directed by Tokyo James, which features items currently on sale. And what's more, some of them are actually on Sale. It's a good sale as far as sales go... 50% off on some items is pretty darn good isn't it?
Even though the film is called Cool Kids, I didn't think that the cool title extended to me until fashionablelagos.com said that I was part of a select group of Lagos cool kids invited. They stuck a picture of me in there too!
|Here we've got Bidemi Zakariyau (left) and Toyin Jolapamo aka the Sohosister. Bidemi's wearing a Clan ensemble and it's hot. It's hot like tabasco. It's hot like fish suya. I was a little bit of a creep about how hot she looked, but my marbles are lost so it's excusable. Do you think that this picture is a poor representation of how great that Clan dress is? Scroll down a little bit.|
|I like this picture even though I shouldn't It's really noisy, but I like noise, so there! If you don't like it you can send me a shouty email. Here we've got Baim Akin-Agunbiade who owns/runs the Diesel store in Lagos.|
|A screen grab from the fashion film.|
|As far as fashion films go, it is a good one. I can honestly say that I was never bored. There were a lot of bare chests, but I suppose that was okay because one of the models they hired was Wale Bello who's ripped.|
|Another screen grab...|
|And another one...|
|Bidemi again... I know she's hot and all, but I'd really like you to look at the people behind her. That's Mr and Mrs Stranger Lagos, Yegwa and Bibi. You remember Stranger don't you? If you don't read about it here. http://www.theramblingsofamadman-afam.com/2013/12/stranger-lagos.html|
|Bidemi, Toyin and I.|
|The mirror in the Diesel fitting room is perfect for Selfies. Toyin and I couldn't resist.|
|Here, I could gush about how pretty she is, and how great her smile is, but I don't need to. Photographs steal words.|
|And this is how you PHOTOBOMB!! If Papa Afam ever reads the blog, he'll be broken hearted. Some of you will look at this and shake your heads, don't, I'm shaking my head enough for the both of us.|
