I’m not going to pretend I’m a jeans-tee-sneakers kinda girl, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the look. And few are doing streetwear as well as the hotties over at Head Honcho.
The growing clothing label got much deserved props when it showed at Johannesburg Fashion Week’s Fasttrack Day (the day before day one). I wasn’t invited *flips imaginary weave*, but I hear they killed it.
AKA and Lulocafe provided entertainment, so you know it was a hot party. HH showcased a mix of summer and winter collections and one of their latest ambassadors, Khanyi Mbau took to the ramp. I’m not too sure how I feel about this collab, but hey, you have to respect their hustle, I suppose. She did look haute on the runway:
‘Honcho means a leader, a role model and someone who takes their destiny into their own hands. I believe that’s what appealed to those who like the brand,’ co-founder Nick Kaoma told City Press’s Mokgadi Seabi. ‘We target the mind-set, not age. That’s why this brand can be worn by a 13-year-old right up to working professionals.’
‘We had an opportunity to showcase our clothing and to show that we’re more versatile than people think. We have many items – from denims to cardigans and sweaters,’ he said.
Just browsing through the HH collections, I’ve managed to pinpoint some of my fave looks:
How cute is the long sleeve tee and the varsity jacket for winter? I’d so rock both with a high waisted skirt and pumps.
Yes, girl, I’d be side-eyeing dude for that fab cardie, too. But you’re looking great in that vest, though.
You can get your HH gear at Shesha stores (Rosebank, Melrose Arch, The Glen and Eastgate Malls) in JHB, PTA (Menlyn) and CT (Canal Walk) and HH headquarters at Pentagon Place, 62 Roeland Street.
My greatest hits from Anisa’s collection:
Heni takes his bow
What I loved about Heni’s collection…
… This skirt:
… This cape:
… This dress. Oh my, THIS DRESS. And the grey school socks.
… Everything here. Including the red tape:
I skipped day two of JFW… I was feeling a little tired and want to save my energy for tonight’s Thula Sindi show and tomorrow’s epic David Tlale extravaganza. But, thanks to the dedicated photographers from AFI, we can still gawk at the runway looks in all their glory. So, let’s:
I’m going to be brutally honest here and admit that I didn’t enjoy Errol Arendz’s show last night. He’s an absolute fashion legend and I do so love his shoe range, but I really wasn’t feeling his winter collection. Given all that, I must say the ‘Yeti coats’ (as Elle’s Senior Fashion Editor Kirsty calls them) were delicious. More please, Errol?
Here I am in my Michelle Obama-esque number with Fairlady Fashion Editor, Chu.
The gorgeous, gracious Jena Dover (centre) and friends.
RnB star Loyiso Bala and his amazingly friendly and sweet fiancee Jennifer.
Beautiful (I have too many adjectives to describe this woman) Tatum Keshwar and the equally stunning Sonia Booth.
It’s about that time again… You know, time to pretend you can walk in your ‘sitting shoes’ and time to airkiss and pretend you ‘absolutely lurve’ half of the people in the front row. Yes, you guessed it, Joburg Fashion Week!
I missed the very first day, Fastrack Day (but I’ll blog what I can), but yesterday was officially day one and this is what went down…
The first show of the day at The Bus Factory in Newtown was the much-anticipated Suzaan Heyns winter collection and it was outstanding, as usual.
The picture does this little number no justice. I love this dress - the peachy tones (which were washed out by the lighting) make this a winner.
Suzaan plays with shapes and brought the ‘inside’ (bone shapes) out. Her leather work was fantastic.
Loved this. Loved the braiding around the dress.
This dress isn’t totally ‘me’, but I can so see myself rocking this. SAMA’s 2011? Hmmm….
