The Threaded Man SA Menswear Week style report 

“South African Menswear Week took place last week in Cape Town, designers from across the country came to showcase their latest offering for Spring/Summer 2016. With all the designers showcasing, the following caught my eye.”

MaXhosa by Laduma

“Inspired by his Xhosa culture and heritage, this Eastern Cape native started his MaXhosa label while studying at NNMU.

“Last year, he showcased his collection at Joburg Fashion Week and since then he showed his collection across international stages and recently Pitti Uomo in Italy. His S/S ’16 collection is all about African leisure and ease.”

“Inspired by pop culture, this fresh designer made his mark by winning AFI Fasttrack in 2014.

“Since then, he has been the fastest growing young designer due to his quirky and androgynous menswear. For his summer collection, it was all about being loose – pants and jackets with volume. ”

MUTE by Jenevieve Lyons

“Jenevieve is one of the most progressive designers Africa has seen in years. Making her debut in 2013 after graduating from AFI Fasttrack.

“FYI: Jenevieve has dressed artists from Lindiwe Suttle to Beatenberg.”


Flying Fish Augustine

“A premium men’s clothing label with incredible tailoring, Augustine began its wave onto the scene when the two ladies behind the brand partnered with celebrity Masego ‘Maps’ Maponyane in 2013 on a limited edition suit line.

“Since then they have dominated the runways across Africa. This season was all about safari and adventure.”
