South African Menswear Week (SAMW) AW16 came to an end last week, and from yesterday we have been sharing our favourite looks from the showcase. One look a day, as chosen by different members of the team. Next on the roster, our Editor & Publisher, MR SIPHIWE MPYE.
“Chu Suwannapha’s Chulaap collection has received a lot of attention since he brought out his army of bold fashion Afrofuturist warriors, and for good reason. Inspired by the experiences and textures of the collective I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU’s travels through the continent, the collection – and this look in particular – displayed the right combination of pattern, cut, print, colour and accessories (the embellished headphones by Pichulik). While this collection was the antithesis of anything I would personally wear (I of the white shirts, shades of grey, black and occasional colour), it thrilled me almost as much as the first time I laid my eyes on Maxhosa by Laduma Ngxokolo.”
