STREET STYLE FEAT. ANDILE BIYANA

IMG_7015 Combing these streets for inspiration via the wardrobes of strangers is the name of the game, running into people like Andile Biyana is what I call a home run. As interesting and complex as menswear is, I find womenswear intriguing in terms of boundaries and limitless it is to experimenting. Many will quickly label Andile’s style as “vintage”, as loosely as that label is used it’s really an intricate play on pattern and drape, simplicity conveyed with a strong pinch of confidence. I love Andile’s approach to her wardrobe, and her personality doesn’t stray too far from amazing.

BLKKANGAROO + SUMMER/SPRING 15

BLKKANGAROO BLKKMARKET 2BBLKKANGAROO BLKKMARKET 9BLKKANGAROO BLKKMARKET 6
As soon as a brand steps out of production and design, aesthetics becomes the most important thing in terms of connecting with the consumer, and the guys over at BLKKANGAROO have executed this quite well with their spring/summer 15 collection. At first glance it’s quite easy to tell this brand easily separates itself from the its peers with a well thought out  collection. The jute bag inspired over sized t shirts are sure to make a revenue splash. The statement rope sandals that I wouldn’t mind having in red is also sure to catch fire, i am a bit curious as to how they will feel on your skin after hours of wear. This Nigerian based brand left nothing to chance, every item seems to fit into the fresh African aesthetic that the brand identifies itself with. From fit to detail,

CONVENIENTLY BEIGE

IMG_1480As a kid,my parents thought the classic movie channel was a better suite than the action channel, which flooded it’s time slots with all my favorite bone snapping movies starring Steven Siegel. I complained bitterly at the time, but now I’m sort of grateful, considering everything I picked up from watching all the great actors who have managed to come back to life via tumblr, making me feel I am retweeting photos of old friends. My time spent behind the black box has definitely helped my journey into classic menswear, I think it’s the reason my idea of colour in a man’s wardrobe has stayed so conservative. I skipped the matching pocket square and tie phase really quick to a more confident space, where my interest fell on quality and a solid appreciation for “what works effortlessly”. I unconsciously picked up on the colour work of the men I religiously watched for hours growing up, due to the absence of colour in majority of the classic movies I enjoyed watching, infusing too much of colour has never been my cup of tea; it often feels like I am trying too hard. The Classic movies I was

THE LIGHT WASH FACTORY 2: 23 PM

IMG_4567   Ever since I scored this three button unconstructed jacket from Tommy Hilfiger, I have been hunting for the perfect light wash denim to complement them for my advanced jay Leno look. Nothing says I am about to have a swell weekend like a pair of light wash denim. These heaven-sent denim pants are from faded glory, I know, that’s the last brand I expected this gift to come from. The weight of these denim pants are really light they feel like one of my tuxedo pants, with that I have had them tailored extra slim for a sharper feel, and I totally love the outcome.

FROM A WARDROBE IN THE SUN

IMG_3798 Before i had any knowledge in suit fabrics, I found the thought incorporating waist coats into my wardrobe quite absurd, considering the fact I live in the tropics where it’s humid all year long. I have encountered a lot of gentlemen who share this ignorant view and i believe it’s mainly due to their little or no knowledge in the types of fabric that exist. Most men on a good day will not go past the color and fit of a suit, which usually leads to bad-buys, and the inability to distinguish the appropriating suiting for different seasons. For example , I find it amusing how a lot of gentlemen gawk at any suit with a slashed price
