U.Mi-1 (pronounced you.me.one) is built on the concept that cultures share more similarities than differences and through our all-embracing ethos, you can connect with the heartbeat of the African continent.
Our unique design aesthetic offers a modern interpretation of Nigerian tribes through a conscious cross-pollination between British tailoring and Japanese minimalism elements, creating thought-provoking silhouettes through creative construction. Describing the style as tailoring with a twist, Creative Director, Gozi Ochonogor transmits in the collections an appreciation of the culture of her homes: Nigeria, UK and Japan, where the brand was established.
U.Mi-1 is valued for its creative design, craftsmanship and comfort. We want to make the wearer feel great in the knowledge that they own something of value, connected to three diverse continents. This reminds us all that “We Are One”. We create Seasonless, timeless collections which are sustainable and form part of your life-wear wardrobe.
