About me

 

Walé Oyéjidé, Esq. is a Nigerian-born, American designer, creative director and attorney that founded the menswear brand kiré Jones. He is Creative Director with a finely honed aesthetic and a history of producing campaigns that marry vivid imagery with compelling storytelling. His work threads the needle between the cultural and the contemporary, and seeks to reflect the authentic experiences of persons that are commonly overlooked in commercial media. At the core of his work is the notion that elegance is not owned by any particular culture, or by any corner of the world. Currently in exhibition, his work may be viewed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, and at the Brussels Center for Fine Art. He has previously exhibited at the Vitra Design Museum and Guggenheim Bilbao, among other places.
