More men are embracing the print trend — from formally structured pants paired with white shirts, to printed shorts with matching shirt which can always be neutralized with a solid color for jacket options.

With shops like TOPMAN and Mr Price who have locally embraced the trend, you can be sure it will infiltrate the social scene even further and that more men can be found in print.

BRUTAL FRUIT AND MAPS FOR JOOP! HOMME

I never really do these sorts of posts – however, just this once I am sure I can break the rules yeah?

When the invite said…#MANGOGOJI4MAPS, I was rather puzzled and wondered to myself. What could Brutal Fruit have to do with GQ’s best-dressed men runner-up and the current cosmopolitan magazine’s sexiest men winner – Maps Maponyane?

It turns out, it is all part of their #MANGOGOJI’s campaign in support of the model and fashion creative director as part of his VOTE-A-THON to being the ultimate JOOP! HOMME brand ambassador, competing with notable TV presenter and model, Lunga Shabalala.

The brand for party people will host a sundowner session this afternoon at Liquid Chefs in Rosebank for Maps. For those who are simply tired of soap and blankets – thanks to the rainy joburg day and this cold weather — and would rather be seen in the zone – contact @MandlaDakada – email: mandla@dnabrand.co.za or alternatively: 076 2183669

STYLE-ON-THE-GO: TODAY’S LOOK – THE FASHION WRANGLER

This Friday, I’m in that jean to jeans kind of mood.

And being the fashion ranger that i am — It was only fitting to finally unwrap my fashion box that was delivered a couple of weeks ago. With all the latest fashion items from @wranglerben latest collection (And I think most items are already in-store).

And to complete my #FashionFriday look – I opted for the amazing grey denim shirt with awesome pearl button detail and a blue distressed jeans with the most interesting maroon hemline lining.

The pride of their stitching and the pop of color adds an edge to what would normally be just another pair of jeans. I mean hello!!! — every respectable fashionista knows that the devils in the style detail.

All I wish I had now would be those awesome wrangler boots — but thankfully, my Zara leather brown brogues with that dash of lime for sox — completed this friday’s look perfectly.

What you think?

For all those looking to wet their denim appetite but need that little bit of a push. Well then, you’d be happy to know that Wrangler has been having this cool denim promo where you score a FREE heritage wrangler tee with your denim purchase.

I know I am telling you what most would assume is only news, but if you are like me and rediscovering the joys of denim once again. They are definitely checking out in the next 48 hours whilst the promo is still active.

I mean, Wranger is absolutely super cool, the brand boasts with loads of sex appeal. I just love that their fit is always perfect  and hems are not too rigid but allow for a playful happy sox fanatic like me to express himself with ease.

NEW PETITION CALLS FOR PARSONS TO FIRE JOHN GALLIANO

By thefrockreport | 2013-04-25 14:13:06

A petition protesting former Dior’s creative director John Galliano’s new teaching appointment has emerged following the announcement that Galliano will teach a masters class at Parsons.

Though the petition is anonymous on change.org – it is at least intended to appear that it’s coming from a Parsons student.  ‘We do not want money from our tuition going to this kind of person. We feel like we’ve been slapped in the face by our school.’ – fashionista.com reported.

Currently carrying about 175 signatures the petition argues that it’s “disgraceful” for the design school to hire the highly-controversial designer who, just two years ago, was arrested and subsequently fired from Dior for making anti-Semitic slurs.

One wonders if John will ever be able redeem himself as other still feel this act by parsons might be seen to be placing too much value him over their students’ respect, peace of mind, and heritage.

SA FASHION WEEK KICKS OFF WITH A BANG!

SA Fashion Week kicked off last night at the Crown Plaza in Rosebank where some of the very best SA fashion designers showcased their latest spring/summer collections.

The first day hit the spot with a lot of the fashion editors and bloggers who were on my radar. With the most loved collection being the ever so fabulous Black Coffee. I later caught-up with Jacques van der Watt’s to get his perspective on his collection, “The starting point were the mud cloths from the Makuba tribes in Congo – the workmanship has been passed down from tribe to tribe” he said.

The collection illustrated a lot substance with the shapes that were almost marking the body as he worked with a lot of positive and negative shapes. But above all, the headgear really stole the show and served as the one golden thread within the collection. “It was a cross reference of a strong equestrian and gladiator feel juxtaposed with African masks in the front as I tried not to be too literal in my interpretation” he concluded.

Clive Rundle also showed his collection through a live installation reminiscent of a magazine fashion shoot with a voice over seemingly trying to interpret what the viewer could be seeing from the collection as models took to the stage platform for the presentation. “It examined a person’s personality, character, and emotional functionality. Since most people are reluctant to describe their thinking process.” He said.

Sheldon Kopman concluded the night with his installation that featured a few key pieces, curated through a video that was about the rural-urban migration of a young man. And in true Naked Ape style, pieces are made from natural fabrics like woven bamboo, organic cotton and hemp, accented and layered with fine perforated leather.
