LEXUS SAMW AW’17 WAS “LIT AF”

LEXUS SAMW AW’17 WAS “LIT AF”
Opened by the City Executive Mayor, Patrica De Lille.
“South African Menswear week fits in with where we want to pitch Cape Town in Africa, as the events Capital.”
-De Lille
Great fashion moved through the doors of the Palms Decor and Lifestyle Centre in Woodstock more so, on the runway.

 

IMPRINT- Mzukisi Mbane

 

Imprint gave some good story telling, as Mzu’ seemed to have gotten it right to perfectly infuse the essence of his heritage and allowing it to filter through in his collection.

NICHOLAS COUTTS

WOW! would be the manner in which to describe the experience Coutts gave us.  The perfect expression of Autumn-Winter.  A play on texture, colour and fabrics paired with impeccable styling.

RICH MNISI

A great take on the front-tie pants and shorts with added detail. Rich takes us on a monochromatic journey yet still allows the eyes to fall on the detail of each garment. This to us is artistry at its best.

JENEVIEVE LYONS

Jenevieve introduces, DEFRAGMENTED.
“We aim to pull together what was once seen to create a new- a revisited place in a slight different sense.”
Each garment speaks volumes in its structure. In a society where there is much divide, Lyons’ collection takes us on a journey of self-discovery.  It reminded us of something the late Alexander Mc Queen said, “Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.”

EMMY KASBIT

Kasbit allows for neutral hues with great attention to detail and superb styling.

NAO  SERATI

 

“Fashion goes in only one direction-forward- and I am a firm believer in thinking that way too.” – Anna Wintour
It was evident, Nao and his forward thinking took us into a different dimension. His futuristic garments and its mobility was “everything” to watch.

SOL SOL

 

Street-style at its best.  SOL SOL was giving us some serious soul in their collection with our Creative Director, Nic van Graan as part of the squad.
