Chu Suwannapha’s unisex Spring/ Summer ’20 collection is inspired by Sotho culture and the Sotho mountain people, a swirl of cultures and a blurring of borders.
Think Wild Wild West; Africa edition. There is a distinct cowboy reference, but it’s more complex than the sheriff hat. The unexpected combinations of Western Cowboy scarves, streetwear beanies, sporty re-deconstructed sandals, and sophisticated tailoring give the story it’s edge.
The looks can be described as sophisticated streetwear and African dandy-esque.
