When I see a poorly executed range on the catwalk I tend to take it personally. It makes me feel like the designer really hates us and has absolutely no respect for our time, like we are out here because we’ve got nothing better to do. Seriously WTF? Y’all need to GTFOH with that mess. Of course the opposite is true when I see a brilliantly executed show, like Chu Suwannapha’s Chulaap this past Saturday at SA Menswear Week. I feel like Chu really loves us and respects us, like he really values our time, like not even one look is a waste of our time. Like he snatches your weave, not to embarrass you, but to reveal the natural hair that lays hidden underneath. It all comes from a place of love. And for this we love him right back. Also, S/O to those PICHULIK embellished headsets and backpacks, as well as the jewellery and pins from Rings & Things. We feel your love Katherine; we feel your love Erika, we receive it, and we love you right back. I won’t say much more; I’ll let the pics below do the talking. Look at them again and again, and feel Chu’s love. #BeBlessed.
