"Contemporary menswear design is driven by obsession to detail, reinvention and sensitive attention to fabrication, scale and proportion, where in some cases, the width of a trouser or lapel can become a life changing event" - Stephanie Cooper

Nakhane Toure - Fog (Official Video)
This mans ears are probably so itchy from my constant mentioning of his name in every single conversation I have had since 16h00 on the 26th of March 2014. He is just a good surprise, exactly what I have been waiting for; something farmiliar from my own country. I’ve heard Civil Twilight and they were great, I’ve heard the alternative “afro-rock” bands and they were cool but Mr Toure has something so delicate to offer. It is sophisticated and even with its cormmercial potential it catches you off-guard. His vocals are crazy, his monochromatic music videos are crazy, his emotional experiments are crazy, he is crazy.

"In the beginning, there is an image of a man, a character. His attitude, a certain nonchalance; these elements have guided my every choice. In this creative process, the fabrics are the focus of my attention; they dictate what they will become." - Aldo Maria Camillo (Cerruti 1881 Creative Director)
I believe I should close my eyes and go buy myself a bucket hat, not just-for-just but as something I plan to take seriously as a member of the closet gang. Everyday, I see black boys doing justice to these hats, dressed as the naturally cool “topped” off with a circa 90s LL Cool J walking alongside 2014 Schoolboy q conviction. Most of the outfit ideas I have for myself to go with this include shorts and plane tees but with SA slowly moving into Autumn, I believe conjuring something for that breeze appropriate shouldn’t be much of a problem… hats are not a seasonal thing right? so… I AM GETTING A BUCKET HAT!
