Outfit of the Day: Urban Impressionism

Sometimes one picture says it all. Sometimes one look, is all it takes. I really wanted to do androgynous for this years South African Menswear Week, but that fell at the wayside when I got my hands on the New York Mets colored, ‘Breakdancing Cities’ Sneaker, by Puma South Africa. In my head, I just got inspired…

South African Menswear Week 2018 – Curtain Call

I’m not in the business of being needlessly cruel, and delivering judgement without doing my due diligence. This disclaimer is necessary so that the reactions to my review of South African Menswear Week 2018, are not shrouded in disbelief, and meritorious points made, be subsequently disregarded for being too sharp. The context South Africa Menswear…

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…

I’ve only just managed to rustle up the energy to say something. My instagram has been busy though, as I…

SA Menswear Week AW16 – Day 4

Last day of SA Menswear Week AW16 and I was so keen to conclude the week…hmmm, first time I’ve been excited to get to the end of a fashion week. One need not guess how rare that is, and how tempestuous it renders my reviews. To conclude my SA Menswear Week look book, I rocked…

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…
