Sterkfontein. Cradle of Humankind.

Quite unusual to see style being documented out the city, especially style that is not of 'African' descent... Style which is quite European in a manner of speaking, especially with the natural background that is present.

It is hard to explain how and why we got to take such a picture but I guess this is to an extent perhaps is how some of those fashion editorial images come to life. Completely two worlds colliding to create something with little to no understanding between both worlds, but just to create beauty. 

And if us the men in this picture don't fill that spot, then perhaps the beauty is captured in nature.

Re-worked Vintage.

Appreciating quality is one thing vintage research teaches and for this we thought of altering these suits to fill a design need we have when we start designing our own clothes ... So we had to change the sleeves and work out some styling details. Hope this is heading somewhere. Thank you to Trevor Stuurman for the lovely photography.
