Denola Grey X Ermenegildo Zegna : A Day Well Spent

Hey guys, I'm going to ask you a favor. DO NOT STOP READING! It is going to be a slightly lengthy post, but I promise you it is worth it. Stay with me ...Kthanks!!

As a man who is thoroughly obsessed with all things men's fashion, it should come as no surprise that I am well versed and familiar with certain brands and labels. One of my all time favorite designers is Ermenegildo Zegna.

Zegna is known best for it's suits. These suits have been a staple in quality men's tailoring for decades and have always been a part of the top tier of men's fashion influencers. The Zegna store, in Lagos, Nigeria ( where i am at the moment), opened not too long ago. As luck would have it, the store is currently beingmanaged by a friend of mine. She let me come in for a couple of hours and browse the store . I was able to get a proper feel of how it worked and the aesthetics behind it all. Enough about all of that.The rest of this post is going to be a picture story.

Before I dive in, I want to say a big thank you to Oroma Gookey-Gam for giving me access to the store and for making this shoot possible. Also,a very huge thank you to Demi Banwo ( photographer) for waking up super early to take these beautiful pictures.I had an amazing time! I hope you guys enjoy the picture story and are transported into the Zegna world through these visuals. Till next time. Peace, Love and Patent Leather Zegna Dress Slippers :) x . D.G
