Y’all know I get some of my best life lessons from fashion editorial shoots right? No like really, never ever underestimate the life lessons imparted by awesome fashion photography. A great shoot makes me want to question and contemplate life and stuff. In fact after Juanes (a.k.a Il Retallack) sent me these images from “Narcoleptic City”, his shoot featuring and celebrating designs from the recent South African Menswear Week, I had to take a moment and reflect and ask my myself important life questions like, “Malibongwe Tyilo, have you ever truly been so slayed by a look that things went from zero to narcoleptic real quick? Floored basically, like these models.” I can’t say I’ve got the answer to this most profound of questions, but a deeply personal journey has begun in search of a look that slays a kween so hard that I gotta catch some shut-eye right on the spot, onlookers be damned, nah, blessed!
