The story of VIVENDII began in 2011 with co-founders Jimmy Ayeni, Ola Badiru, and Anthony Oye. Residing in London, the three young men from Nigeria started a blog to showcase their view on fashion. Encouraged by the late Franca Sozzani of Italian Vogue and successful styling collaborations with high profile musicians, the trio launched VIVENDII. The name translates to ‘our way of living’ in Latin, which explains that VIVENDII is more than clothes, but also a message about how we choose to live in them. Shining a light on the creative scene in Lagos, the label’s Nigerian roots come through in every design. While streetwear is the consistent theme, high quality fabrics and production are key components of the label’s ethos. Not shying away from making a statement, VIVENDII’s graphics are often imbued with sentiments of human experience. Featuring a range of jersey and denim, VIVENDII has been worn by the likes of Virgil Abloh, Skepta, Jorja Smith and many more.
