SA Menswear Week AW18: Will the real Rosey and Vittori please stand up?

February 12, 2018

Who are Rosey and Vittori?

Not the people but the brand. Their AW18 show at SA Menswear Week revealed very little of an original and cohesive collection. We saw Gucci’s snake and Kenzo’s eye. Even a Balenciaga-style Bazar Shopper with Gucci straps, and snake, tiger and floral badges. We saw palm prints, oriental prints, velvet and snow-washed denim.

It looked diabolical!

Anything which paints South Africa in a good light needs to be celebrated and Danielle Clough for Gucci is worth a hallelujah.

Italian fashion house Gucci has highlighted the global appeal of its pre-fall 2016 Ace sneaker by commissioning a series of artistic short films. In a campaign titled the #24HourAce project, the brand commissioned works from international artists to illustrate the shoe’s performance. Cape Town-based fibre artist Danielle Clough stands among them.

Milan Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

October 1, 2015

Milan_Duomo_17‘Clouds, you have to visit the Milan Duomo. It. Is. Beautiful!’, begged my friend Adele who’s fascination with Milan borders on obsession.

My reply of what is that? was met with three ROFL emojis. Yes, this is all going down on WhatsApp as I have not researched Milan prior to arrival. Having learned it was a church, I headed off to the centre of Milan and it’s famous cathedral.

How to wear the DENIM DRESS

August 17, 2015

How to wear a denim dressNow that my life has earned a degree in manageability, I’m back to entertain / dress / bore you – or all of the above. Either way, hello:)

Let’s dive head first into shopping; an indulgence I lavished in this weekend. My new obsession is the denim dress; the hottest sartorial piece to segue from winter to spring. Easily wearable with trainers, ankle boots, block heels or a fringed sandal, you’ll own a winning go-to right here.

Topshop denim dress

I bought this MOTO button down denim dress from Topshop for R899. The Celine ‘New Audrey’ acetate sunglasses and Zara suede fringed sandals are vying for pole position on my wish list.

Good to have you back in my life again. How have you been?

Amanda Seyfried swopped long sleeves for a gold wowzer at the LA premiere of her new movie, Lovelace.

Earlier in the week she had worn a pretty-in-pink Balmain Resort 2014 number on the New York leg of her promo tour. Here at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, she hit party-mode on the red carpet in a head turning gold Gucci halter-neck mini dress, smouldering eyes and towering Givenchy sandals.

I would have liked some merlot coloured varnish on those toes, though but on the whole, thumbs up to Amanda. She went from Polyanna to Tombraider in one swoop. Hot!

PS: After seeing this and the gold pebble dress from local designer Gavin Rajah’s SS2013 collection which won Best Object in South African at Design Indaba earlier this year, I’m adding luxe to my list.
