Local designers are being internationally recognised for their bold, subversive take on menswear. When you look at the exciting collections shown at the recent Lexus SA Menswear Week in Cape Town, it's easy to see why they're garnering global attention.
1) The slogan
Simple separates with bold lettering will be doing the talking this Autumn/Winter. Sport a classic t-shirt or cosy sweatshirt with cheeky wording for a trendy look with an edge.
2) Everyday prints
The fashion world's never-ending love affair with prints continued at SA Menswear Week. Local designers played with a range of artistic, graphic and logo-based prints set on tailored pieces to create eye-catching everyday wear.
3) Deconstructed tailoring
Sharp tailoring is a staple in any man's wardrobe, but for their Autumn/Winter 2017 collections, local designers took a shot at reinventing the tailored look by deconstructing the classic shirt, blazer and trousers.
4) Shades of blue
Blue is the colour of the season. Designers flooded the runway with models sporting wardrobe staples in hues of baby blue and deep sea navy.
