Kene Rapu Launches New Menswear Collection, “SlippersForHIM” with Upcoming Artist Yasser

Nigerian footwear designer Kene Rapu has just announced a new collection from her eponymous brand, titled “SlippersForHIM” and designed in collaboration with up and coming Lagos-based artist, Yasser.

The new Resort’15 range includes a luxury line up of handmade leather slippers and sandals for men, with each piece carefully crafted by local artisans in Nigeria, using materials sourced from local markets – an authentic touch to the brand which seeks to put comfortable and cool, fashionable footwear that promotes African heritage yet appeals to a global audience.

Yasser (full name, Yasser Claud-Ennin) said of his involvement and love for the label;

“I have admired the Kene Rapu brand for championing such an initiative: promoting the local industry. I have always followed the brand from its early days, and watched it grow.


After I saw the initial mens line, I saw an opportunity to create something high end, cool and contemporary, that would resonate with men of different generations. With the new line, I wanted to create a luxe selection of slippers that are stylish, cozy and smart-casual at the same time.”

Available to buy from the Kene Rapu store located at 1a Olajide George, Lekki Phase 1, in Lagos, Nigeria, these slippers for men are a definite must-have – see the rest of the lookbook below then grab a pair fast before they completely sell out.
