South African fashion week is one of the country’s most important fashion runway events. It occurs twice a year and corresponds to two seasons. First, there is the spring/summer season, followed by the autumn/winter season. The retail industry divides the season into six-month segments in this manner. What is the significance of this event? Fashion week, on the other hand, allows designers to showcase their creations while focusing on key trends for the season. Some items are high-fashion, while others are ready-to-wear. Following that, fashion buyers use the shows as critical components to get season inspiration.
South African Fashion Week has officially begun an exciting fashion week of runway collections for the Spring/Summer 2022 season. On Saturday, I attended SAFW2022 and thoroughly enjoyed the menswear this season. I absolutely loved the signature menswear staples, which were exquisitely custom – made fashionable and layered looks combined with innovative design techniques and bright, vibrant colours for the men’s collections. From Ephraim Malingoane’s Ephymol, daring, bold silhouettes to Floyd Avenue by Morapedi Floyd Manotoana’s retro vibes. This season reintroduces the joy of fashion. We love colour.
To inspire your Summer wardrobe purchases, we’ve revealed the best looks from South African Fashion Week Men’s Spring-Summer 2022 Season ahead.
