CITY STORIES / In Lagos with Trippin

With a network of contributors in pretty much every corner of the world, the digital platform Trippin aims to show the most exciting travel destinations through the eyes of local residents. Here, in a collaboration with Farfetch, Trippin introduces three residents from Lagos, who offer an insight into what it’s really like to live in Nigeria’s capital city, and share their highlights from the season’s collections. Read their stories below.

Solis, singer

‘The best way to view Lagos and understand its world is through the streets. I was born here and I’ve lived here my whole life. My city is my history. It’s where my roots are and it defines who I am and who I am becoming. If you come here, I recommend going to this spot by the waterside in Lekki. It’s somewhere even some of the locals don't even know about and it has the best views in the city – really pretty. Also, make sure you try jollof rice.’ In shot: Solis wears top by See by Chloé, dress by Reformation and boots by Wandler.

Ashley Okoli, entrepreneur

‘I have lived in Lagos all my life. I was born here and have been here ever since. I currently live in Lekki, but before that I lived in Surulere, where my family home is. Fundamentally, Lagos is where my roots are. It’s the only place I’ve lived in and the only place I really know. It’s my city, so in that way Lagos means the world to me, and our music and creativity make it a tolerable space. I immediately knew this would be the perfect spot to take these photos. The dress has clouds on it and Eko Atlantic is a bright open space and the clouds came out beautifully.’ In shot: Ashley wears dress by Reformation and boots by Roker.

Jess Jess Finesse, podcast host and creative

‘I’ve been living in Lagos since December 2017. I moved a year prior to do a programme called The National Youth Service Choir, and that’s when I fell in love with the country. When I first moved here, I didn't have my foot in what I wanted to do. I was given the opportunity to host a festival here in Lagos called Nativeland and it proved to me that I could do anything. I was born and raised in America, so I had to take a huge leap of faith to move to Nigeria despite advice from my parents and friends. People say, if you can survive in New York, you can survive anywhere, but truly, if you can survive Lagos, you can survive anywhere. In shot: Jess wears top by Acai, jeans by SLVRLAKE, boots by Paco Rabanne and bag by Jimmy Choo.
