Andréa’s Flaunt And Frank

When we asked some of our readers why they didn’t invest in much Vintage, the answer was almost always unanimously; If it was more available, we probably would be bothered, but the idea of having sift through piles and piles of junk to find a treasure, is just not attractive to me. Perhaps “junk” is …

Indianna Harris’ NiceFind

“Welcome to my store,” says an astonishingly bubbly character on a chilly Saturday morning. The atmosphere is cheerful, and lighthearted, with an equally relaxing accompaniment of Nina Simone’s “Human Kindness” whirring in the background, taking me back to my own days living in Havana, Cuba. That particular Saturday morning of 2012, was the opening day …

Studio Cocoa Moon at Jozi Hi! Street

A story. That’s one of main things that everyone is looking to tell when they get dressed in the morning, but the crazy thing is; We do it subconsciously.  If you’re ill, unless you’re trying to say otherwise, your attire will be conducive to your condition. How we dress is always a reflection on what we …

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M available in South Africa

Picture yourself going through the Maison Martin Margiela (or MMM) archives from the past two decades. What would you see? Struggling to picture yourself going through those archives? Picture yourself shopping a re-edition of those archive pieces at H&M. Unwilling to allow yourself the luxury of that thought either, huh? Jaded because South Africa does …

Jozi Hi! Street; Almost A Year In Business

When Hi! Street first began, it’s founders say that they’d always wanted to be part of the consignment community, but weren’t sure what their part in that equation would be, and were tired of being spectator ions in an industry that they desperately wanted to develop. The catalyst came during the festive season. Spurred by having received …

Missshape, S.A Fashion Week AW13

“Catering for curves”, that’s the tagline behind the mother, son duo brand of Missshape (pronounced: Miss Shape). The thing about “clothing for curvy women” designers, that usually causes much apprehension on our side, is the idea that most of them simply take a large roll of fabric, and drape it around a frame, without much consideration being …

Skorzch, S.A Fashion Week AW 2013 Menswear

Zano Sithetho Showed in the Renault New Talent Search on Thursday, September 27, and since we weren’t really familiar with his style of design, you can understand our anxiety, but alas, we were pleasantly surprised to find behind the name “Skorzch” (don’t worry, you’re saying it right), amazing tailoring, well cut, and well made Menswear, which is probably a first …

Rodarte SS13, NYFW

In one sentence, New York Mag describes the collection as: “Medieval “It” girls, on tour with Axl Rose.” We believe that Rodarte went oriental, in a majour way! Though the collection cannot in any way (right?) be influenced by our latest obsession with KDrama, and KPop, the embroidery on most of their garments was giving …

Catherine Malandrino SS13, NYFW

Prep matured, and got chic! That was the first exclamation here at HQ when we saw this collection. With a trendy use of colour, and pattern, shape, cut, and fabric, Catherine Malandrino‘s collection is sure to become a blogger staple. Due to the designers’ background, the Parisien influence, and effortless chic-ettude is very difficult to …
