Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town
The day had finally arrived, and the excitement was real! My favourite part of fashion week is definitely the street style (seeing all the beautiful fashion forward people) I draw so much of my own inspiration from seeing others express their creative explosions.
Media Pass in hand refreshed and ready for my two shows of the night.
Habits – Jenny le Roux
Monochrome magic! Black & White, red lips and sleek pulled back hair bottled sophistication and femininity as each model glided down the runway. We saw trendy elements of lace, sheer and silk floaty fabrics which were painted with stripes and soft print. Jenny’s entire collection transported me into a glamorous galaxy where red lipstick is a must and stripes are compulsory (My dream world). We have seen the monochrome trend in previous years, however, this year Habits SS16 incorporated a more soft approach, allowing the fabrics to speak for themselves.
Adriaan Kuiters & Jody Paulsen
Knee cleavage and elbow cleavage was the focus element on the runway along with misfit prints and abstract art patchwork.
The SS16 collection drew major inspiration of “that” 70’s sporty inspired feel, yet leaving the audience entertained and a tad bit mischievous at the end. vintage gangsta rap and a modern techno beat blared down the runway tieing hand in hand with the vision that is to recreate and reuse fabrics and patterns to create something completely new.
We saw yet another monochromatic infusion mixed with basic staple colours for both men and woman.
Defiantly a fan of the big bulky brass and wooden bangles, hair clips, brooches and pendants seen going down the runway.
