The South African Menswear Week took place on Saturday, 8 February 2020 at the V&A Waterfront. The industrial architecture of the Quay 7 building created the perfect backdrop for fashionistas and socialites to network and showcase their latest 'look-of-the-day' while enjoying the free fashion showcases.
This season’s SA Menswear Week centred around colour, graphic details, artistic elements and African prints anchored in silhouettes showcasing masculine vigor.
Here are the top fashion week trends for the season:
All over printed suiting
Suits are given an exciting revamp in graphic, check, tie dye and all over prints as showcased by ByEle, Ixsnay, Neo Serati, Masa Mara and XM Creations.
Brush stroke prints and abstract artist prints give clean silhouettes a grunge edge, as shown by Del Lombard, ByEle and even camouflage prints shown by Ixsnay.
Whether in the form of a boiler suit, flight suit or jumpsuit, the overall is here to take root! Variations in silhouette, fabric and colour showcased by Del Lombard, Merwe Mode Tiaan, Lucky Luke and Masa Mara.
Soft sets in matchy tops and trousers, whether plain or printed, as shown by Masa Mara, Lucky Luke, Ixsnay, One I am, Throwaway Twenty.
