My tastes tend to tilt toward the side of decadence.

I came to this discovery during Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg…

Klaas in Session come Fashion Week 2015

When I first got word that Mercedes-Benz had decided to, once again, take up the mantle of chief sponsor for Fashion Week in Cape Town in association with Africa Fashion International, I got so excited. Theirs is a brand that thrives on marketing a kind of lifestyle which straddles the fence between middle class decadence…

Ollie in London: The Days that followed Fashion Week

Following London Fashion Week, and the scrumptious food consumed during said week, I turned full-on tourist. I gave up the stiletto heels for functional shoes, big coats and scarves. One thing I can say about world travel is that once you know what vibe you’re into, you’ll find a mellow way of getting to it…

London Fashion Week 2015: Event Review

I expected more. I expected to be awed by an unparalleled sense of decadent historical nostalgia, contemporary style innovation and pure wonder at the annual spectacle that celebrated British fashion and implied subsequent creativity. What I got was something that paled in comparison. I don’t count it to be a fault on my part for…

London Fashion Week: Day 3 Look

First of all: HOLY CRAP! Today’s weather went from tolerable cold to “Dear Lord!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town (Review)

Let me begin in relaying my thoughts on fashion in the steady lilt of beautifully enunciated narration, such as the ones currently made popular in North American cinematic offerings: “Fashion is the chaos in one’s soul, which allows the birth of subjective perfection. It is finding the imperfect breath-taking. It is where things fall apart,…

Cape Town Fashion Week 2013: Streetstyle

I noted one of the Luxo Magazine folks rocking a pair of white…
