How to wear Gen Z Yellow

August 14, 2018

This daffodil coloured trend earned its stripes last year when it kicked Millenial Pink into oblivion. I wasn’t a fan until I received a Michael Kors handbag for Christmas and did a bit of an “oooh hello”. A pair of suede heels followed last month which was needed to jazz up a brown knitted dress. At the event I attended, they literally took on a life of their own. I am now officially in love so here’s how to wear Gen Z Yellow with absolute confidence.

If you’re conservative like me, stick to accessories. If you’re blonde or have a yellow undertone to your skin,  consider wearing the colour on the bottom half of your body. For the rest of you, go bananas. It’s fun and unashamedly flirty.

SA Menswear Week SS19 – Chulaap by Chu Suwannapha

July 10, 2018

I want each of you to leave a comment below on an alternate introduction I could use for Chulaap at SS Menswear Week SS19 – or subsequent seasons for that matter. The reason I’m asking is that I’m constantly repeating myself. Designer Chu Suwannapha always brings a show to an absolute standstill – before it explodes into a rapture of absolute awe. I always sit there wondering how could such a quiet, charming, humble man pack so much punch. I couldn’t tell you, so do what I do. Enjoy!
