The penultimate day of South African Fashion Week (SAFW) ensured that the extravaganza ended with a bang and not a whimper.
Here are a few highlights from day three:
Art Club and Friends presented metallic suits in an ode to the 90s. Pops of royal blue added a dramatic flair to the ensemble.
Checkered accents provided modern detail to creations by Bi Parel. The collection was concluded by monochrome athleisure designs with an ode to streetwear.
Tailored denim jackets in whites, pale pinks and matte blacks were eye-catching. The monochrome feel was continued in the twist on the classic suit.
Delicate patterns in contrasting tones captured the senses in the Ephymol collection. Bowler hats, customised masks and patterned sandals ensured a consistent brand narrative from top to tail.
The inspired collection of GuguByGugu included patchwork patterns with bold blocked colours. This was complemented by finely woven mohair elements which added a rich texture to the garments.
Khaki has never looked sexier with pops of camo adding a wilderness element, and forest green adding a rich tone.
The monochrome medley of the Naked Ape collection ensured that textures did the talking. From crimped to pleated, black never looked so good.
The power of pink was communicated loud and clear in the collection by Neo with abstract patterns bringing the look together seamlessly
Re-inventing the male suit, Thabo Kopele pulled out all the stops with the loose-fit monochromatic collection featuring strong lapels and angular lines.
Last but not least, Xavier Sadan wowed the audience with a tasteful collection of casual-chic suits, making use of strategic pops of colour and eye-catching icons that really made a statement.
With SAFW concluded, it’s clear that the bar has been raised and we can expect great things from these intrepid designers in the next instalment.
