Louis Vuitton

1. You might not know this but Louis Vuitton has a new mens style and studio director: KIM JONES, who is a graduate from Central Saint Martin.
2. The 2012 Spring/Sumemr collection is described as ———-> ”globe-trotting” amidst the luxe styling, hints of sportswear and American Aristocratic influence” yeah, OK. Great. Now to get to the actually point… THE AFRICAN INSPIRED PIECES OF THE COLLECTION HAD EVERYBODY’S ATTENTION!  
Kim Jones took influence and inspiration form Africa’s Masai warrior camp  by reminiscing about his childhood years (which he spent in Botswana and Ethiopia) during the design process of this collection.

Its’ a really fresh spin on things. 

Simon Deporres

this clothing label founded by Mpilo and Simon, two young men from Cape Town, continues to flourish and inspire.  I absloutely love their work and if you would like to see more of their collection here's a link to their website --->


Are they brogues? Are they espadrilles? Or are they brothel creepers with a sporty, spongey, slightly futuristic edge? The answer: they're Prada. And in fashion terms, that's all that matters.
Seen on Rihanna, Jude Law, Blake Lively and a number of other celebrities these shoes have sold out across London! And understandably so, they are a work of art.

Agyness Deyn and her work with Mr Price

Popular for her cropped peroxide blond hair and punk, androgynous style that has put her on best dressed lists and earned her a cult-following the world over, Agyness Deyn is part style icon, part fashion rebel. She’s also something of a new age Cinderella. She was spotted while working at a fish n chip show and the rest, as they say is fashion history.
Now, we’ve seen her styling a Mr Price Range as well as judging the Mr Price New Designer (ND) competition at the inaugural 031 Collection presented by Mr Price.

This is from her photoshoot for Elle Magazine South Africa.
