Lexus South African Menswear Week: The blasé nod to 2017 style

I think designers understand menswear better this year. While theatricality plays its part during fashion week, it is functionality and fresh design that provide the bottom line after the shows end, most of the time.

2017! Year of epic #BodyPositivity

It started with a beat – No, for real! Dancing around in my room, feeling good while jamming out, is somewhat cathartic, and ups my self-confidence tremendously.
