Cape Town’s fashion crowd descended upon the Cruise Terminal of Cape Town’s Waterfront to view the Autumn/Winter presentation of SA Menswear Week. The raw industrial location provided a clean slate for the eclectic collections showcased. Winter 2019 is set to be a kaleidoscope of colour and texture.

Tokyo James

The Tokyo James man is urban, street and slick. Modern silhouettes and expert tailoring are given an edge with bright pops of colour and graphic prints. His must-have accessories? The bag, the waist belt and the cape. Go for lime green in true Tokyo James style.

Nicholas Coutts

Classic winter fabrics, prints and textures are brought to life with primary colours. Confidence and effortless style come in yellows, greens and reds. The designer’s cable-knit sweaters and oversized scarves are sure to be some of the season’s most covetable items.

Nao Serati

Nao’s collection blurs the line between traditional masculine and feminine silhouettes. This vibrant offering is what getting dressed up is all about… saying yes to PVC, yes to fancy headgear and yes to sequins – and above all, yes to having fun.

ALC Menswear

Winter is all about layering and ALC served the heat. Capes, coats and jackets were thrown over shirts of varying lengths. We particularly liked the longer hemlines. And the tie-dye prints and bucket hats scream ’90s nostalgia.
