Menswear rocks a rainbow of colours in South Africa.

In Johannesburg, South Africa the runways lit up during  South Africa Fashion Week. Just like last season we simply fell in love with that country’s menswear design scene.  Colour was key for these menswear designers who rocked the ramp with their Spring/Summer 2013-14 collection!

 

Kajula Motambo

 

This self-taught designer started his own label in 2008. In 2011 he finished a two-month internship in Italy. His Spring/Summer 2013-14 collection is all about the sharp dressed man. The eye-catching colour combinations using gorgeous coral and fantastic orange often flirting with pastels and super-fun colour blocking adds a great sense of fashionable whimsy in colours that gives that menswear an added pop.

Ephymol

 

Having entered the fashion world as a model, Ephraim Molingoane already had an idea on what it takes to create an eye-catching collection. His global travels influenced his fashion vision. His latest collection which showcased cotton with lamb’s wool and boasts a fantastic array of sharp hues combined with the various patchwork detail which gives this menswear collection a solid punch.

Skorzch 

 

We featured him when he won South Fashion Week’s Renault New Talent Competition in 2012. So naturally we wanted to see how Skorzch continues his design journey with his latest collection. His Spring/Summer 2013-14  presents the “modern gentleman”. Slim-cut silhouette with urban edginess and of course a kaleidoscope of fabulous shades which just completes the cosmopolitan picture.
