#SAFW: LOXION KULćA S/S 2013

Under normal circumstances, I would throw a massive bitch-fit if designers at South African Fashion Week were to serve collections that seemed more ready to retail and less showmanship-like. As much as I fully understand that an ultimate result of showcasing on such a large programme should render a sellable brand, the sad little custom of “off-the-peg, onto the runway” and vice versa grinds my wigglies. That being said, when LOXION KULćA celebrated their 14th year in the African urban fashion industry on the #SAFW runway with a collection I wanted to rip right off (most of) the models’ backs –I had to stop a recently resurrected alter-ego from surfacing and gyrate on the runway. Wandi Nzimande’s collaboration with the genius that is Olebogeng Ledimo of House of Ole had a survival theme and featured BANG-BANG-on-trend elements of militaria –see why I wanted it? All of it!! I loved that even though camo stands a chance of trickling into the cheesy bin (seriously…any minute now), LOXION did like it is always expected of its heritage value and incorporated very clear interpretations. Think; borrowing from the wardrobe of a sickeningly chic air force dream team!
