If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, here’s the big news. I’ve been assisting on the launch of Curated.Africa online store; your source for quality-crafted products made in Africa.
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.
When I saw ThrowAway Twenty on the SA Menswear Week SS19 show schedule, I wondered where the hell event owner Simon Deiner was digging these people out from? I’d never heard of ’em. Haha, it’s evident I don’t know much because this me eating humble pie.
Designers Rome Wepener and Lana Eslin describe themselves as, ‘an unapologetic menswear brand for boys and guys. We are all about offbeat and suave design with a youthful tongue-in-cheek point of view’. You don’t need much more than that so let’s take a look.
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!
