CELEBRITIES SPOTTED IN ESNOKO: Ebony Mystikal.

My fashion business partner, Chiza and I and grateful for the response our brand has been getting. Over the past few months and weeks, we have had some amazing people spotted wearing Esnoko. This means a lot to us and I will be sharing some of their photos while wearing our clothes.

This beautiful African diva spotted in an Esnoko t-shirt this week is South Africa’s film maker and Dance Hall DJ, Ebony Mystikal.

I think she did our t-shirt some great justice with how she pulled it off. Beautiful hair too. I wish we could claim it was Esnoko too, hahahahahah!

The Yeezy Basketball Concept Sneaker

kanye basketball.jpgWhen Kanye West said he was “god”, people called him blasphemous but Ye, as he is commonly called has kept his god-like tendency of always creating new things. Even at a time when his personal life seems to be falling up, his business is getting busier.

The latest business news on Kanye is his latest collaboration with Adidas on the Yeezy Boost Basketball Concept sneakers that are scheduled to be released soon.

The new boosts will be based on the original Yeezy Boost 350s but in a high-top version. They will also have the simple one piece prime-knit with laces. The basketball sneakers will be available in four colours: white/gum, pirate-black, black/gum and the Yeezy signature turtle-dove.

This must be great news for basketball players owing to the Yeezy’s unmatched comfort and light weight. These will be great for sneaker collectors too as they will also be categorized as lux sneakers.

My New Addiction: Watches.

I was never much of a wrist watch kind of guy but once I got hooked, there was no looking back. My liking for watches started off slowly as a guilty pleasure. I now enjoy collecting watches as much as I enjoy shoes. This baby right here is a Rose Gold TAG HEUER Formula 1, Calibre 16 with hand-stiched suede leather straps.

Styling My Friend’s Wedding.

the-guys

On Friday, December 2, I had the privilege of dressing up my business partner and friend as well as his groomsmen. It was the first time I had to style a whole grooms party and it was quite interesting. dance2.jpg

The groom was a plus size and that meant special bespoke outfits had to be made for him. Thankfully, I partly own a bespoke brand so that helped. However, it is never easy when outfits have to be made from a different country based only on measurements but we pulled it off. My genius fashion business partner, Chiza Ngulube came through as always and did an amazing job at that.

We had to hire suits for the rest of the guys and that too worked out perfectly as we did everything in good time.

My pressure was finding accessories in shades of pink and champagne to match the bride’s maids dresses. I used my instincts and fashion gods were on my side it seems as the neckties, pocket squares and waist coats I found were just perfect. To top it off, I had lapel pins made using fresh roses. That meant they had to be transported to the venue in a cooler box with ice and only fixed onto the jackets just before the wedding started.

As they say, all is well that ends well. We had an awesome time and we witnessed my friend get hitched in style just like we wished him to.

Styling, as personal as it gets.

A friend of mine asked me not long ago why I do not do professional photo shoots for my Instagram and personal blog.

My response was that I will do a lot of those but honestly, I would love to do more of my own shots using my beloved Huawei P8 smart phone.

To me, this is as personal as it gets. I get to share my personal style, wardrobe and outfits through my own lens.

I’m scheduled for a photo ¬†shoot with one of Johannesburg’s best photographers in a week or so and I will share as many photos as possible from there, then it’s back to my selfies (smile).
