Pics – The best and worst of fashion week

2014-04-13 15:00

Shaldon Kopman’s collaboration with JD was the talk of SA Fashion Week.

The high-end, avant-garde menswear designer’s new buzz word is ‘diffusion’.

He presented a collection Edward “Magents” Motale would be proud of. There were sporties, bermudas and colourful shirts designed with different shapes and patterns – a celebration of township style.

Palse finally unveiled Palse Femme, which surprised many with its luxurious feel and textures. Leather was used to dramatic effect.

Palse Homme was awash with black and white chessboard patterns with flashes of red here and there.

Rubicon’s hand-wash couture (you can wash the garments at home without a fuss) presented a fashion-forward moment worthy of a standing ovation (not too sure if dry cleaners will join us, though).

Fundudzi’s off-site presentation at OR Tambo International Airport’s viewing deck was a fresh experience. The understated collection

was well received.

Closing the week was Gert-Johan Coetzee with a collection that celebrated Nelson Mandela and borrowed from the Elizabethan era and 1950s

regal silhouettes.

Newsprint and black-and-white dominated the ramp.
