For our last pick of our favourite looks from South African Menswear Week (SAMW) AW16, we asked our Style Contributor MR TSHEPO MOSOKOTSO what caught his eye beyond anything else on the runway. His response was emphatic.
“Praise the fashion gods for her talent because my eyes and soul have feasted on ‘the chosen’ collection. My awesome friend, Siviwe James has a beautiful and convincing vision of how a modern man should artistically dress himself today. Her concept and approach to this collection was inspired by the churches of Africa. ‘They are the descendants of the blessed, anointed in the spirits of authenticated cloth that does not claim ownership over the wearer but releases them from the common obligations of the rat race that is modernity,’ says Siviwe of the men donned in her collection. My favourite look is all about comfort, a de-constructed silhouette and kick-ass attitude. I need this outfit like yesterday.”
