Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture

March 25, 2015

givenchy

I know that is this going back quite a few years, but I don’t care. These dresses that formed part of the Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture collection are so damn beautiful that I wanted to post about them again here in 2015.

Every single gown looks like it would fit perfectly into a period piece drama about the worlds most beautiful vampires, do you know what I mean?

Self Portrait Clothing

March 11, 2015

Today online I saw a Tweet about whether or not Gavin Rajah crossed a line when it comes to fashion inspiration vs. copying. He has just shown at Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in Johannesburg and his collection and one dress in particular bore a striking resemblance to a dress made by UK designer Han Chong, who is the creative director at Self Portrait. So I went and had a look at said label and instantly forgot about the debate (although my opinion is that Gavin Rajah definitely copied the dress) and instead was mesmerised by Self Portrait’s beautiful creations.

The amount of detail and craftsmanship that has gone into every one of these pieces is amazing. These dresses are so romantic and whimsical, I can only imagine how hard it would be to just pick one, not that I’m going to get to pick any, but that is besides the point.

Enjoy.

Live in Levi’s – The Sartists

March 3, 2015

The-Sartists

We have been working on a series called Live in Levi’s®, where we feature different people who literally live in Levi’s. The Sartists, Wanda and Kabelo, are two of the biggest Levi’s collectors in Johannesburg and they have literally spent hours and hours, month after month, year after year, thrifting through piles of clothing to find rare pieces of Levi’s, from silver tabs to vintage dungarees.

We interviewed them about their collection and made this short film about them and their good obsession.

Nanushka

February 24, 2015

Nanushka-10

Nanushka is a Budapest based label founded by head designer, Sandra Sandor. I love all her the clean designs, textures and patterns that she incorporates into her clothes. All her pieces look so comfortable and easy to wear but really luxurious too. Her colour pallet is also so nice, the light pinks and blues, the whites and navies. I suppose having a beautiful model showing off your clothes doesn’t hurt either. How super pretty is this girl? Shoo.

I had never heard of the label Nanushka, until I saw it on Pony Anarchy and became an instant fan.

The Joinery

THE jOINERY-2

I always like supporting local labels because I think that there is nothing better than people going out and trying to make things happen for themselves. So I would like to introduce you all to The Joinery, which is run by sisters Natalie and Kim.

The Joinery is a big supporter of their community and making sure that they do their part to create jobs and preserve the environment as much as possible is a priority to them, in fact a lot of their clothes are handmade in pursuit of this very notion, which I think is very cool.
