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. I think they’re getting it hey! 2017 collections gave the most blasé of nods as an ode to 2016 fashion…

Here for the Curvy: Fashion Bliss with Ruff Tung

“What’s a Ruff Tung?” “Is that code for something dirty?” Nooooooo, you guys! Ruff Tung is just the bomb fashion house that designs like 90% of the creations I don on the red carpet. Founded in 1999, by the now-deceased personality Jean-Paul Botha, Ruff Tung was angled for those with a taste for edgy club…

Thanks to the Designers, Hotels, PR folk & Brands that made my 2016

For many, 2016 has been a world of disappointment, but – while I can list the soul-crushing challenges of this year – I will focus on the amazing positive aspects right now. This year has produced some amazing content for me; and this would not have been possible without the collaborations, the tireless efforts to…

Weekend attendance: Cintron Pink Polo 2016

You know how my life goes? I wake thinking I’m going to one event -a very chilled soirée – when suddenly I’m in a whirlwind hurdling towards Val de Vie Estate. I blame Nontando Mposo! She texts me, on some “There’s a ticket for you. Get ready loser. We’re going to the polo!” tip; and…

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Johannesburg 2016 – Day 3

 Day 3, and I was tired but still wired – like I had mainlined caffeine after running a marathon. I tell you, high heels are not for the faint hearted. Anywhooo, after returning to my hotel from Day 2 of fashion week, I edited and uploaded some pictures to my Instagram, and then promptly passed right…

South Africa Menswear Week SS17 – The Klaasic Style Blogger Review

I know I’ve taken my sweet time to review South Africa Menswear Fashion Week –which “SHOCKER!”  I’m usually so vigilant – But I literally had no words to muster for the mild and mediocre event. I’ve only just managed to rustle up the energy to say something. My instagram has been busy though, as I…

Outfit of the Day: Seaside Vagabond

You’ve been seeing quite a number of my #OOTDs these past few days. Today, I’m throwing good vibes your way with a lil seaside vagabond look. I’m taking you back to the beach so you can feel carefree once again. We’re back at Clifton beach with its glittering turquoise and navy blue ocean water; and soft…

Outfit of the Day: High Glamour

Did you ever look so good you didn’t want to go home because not enough people saw you today? Hahahaha…that’s me today. So this is what I call my “I’m trying too hard but pulling it off” look. I have dozens of these looks in my wardrobe that I deign to rock only when I’m…

The Bokeh International Fashion Film Festival is a Mercedes-Benz sponsored event that brings creatives, authorities, and enthusiasts together through: film, fashion and “Artistic and related technical industries to celebrate their craft twice a year”(Bokeh, 2016) I was there for the inaugural Bokeh International Fashion Film Festival that had me fangirling for globally acclaimed Norwegian Rain designer…

The Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo 2016

Let me be frank: After spending weeks planning diligently, and then executing my online attendance emphatically, I was left feeling…incomplete by the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo event. I doubt that it is the organizers alone to blame, after all, my bout of transport trouble left me arriving extremely late and cranky as all hell. I’m…

SA Menswear Week AW16 – Day 2

Day 2 began with about as much fanfare as the amount of sleep I’ve had these past few days – which is to say none! The best summation of what day 2 offered is that rather than forcing interest on what attendees donned, it was the actual Fall 2016 collections on the catwalk, that kept…

SA Menswear Week AW16 – Day 1

Is it enough to promote menswear development within South Africa when the designs themselves are constantly mundane, with only rare surprises that raise ones interest about as high as an eyebrow can arch? Honestly, I’m arguing with the voices in my head, but I think the correct answer is “Yes”; Making the bi-annual South African…
