Black and Navy Blue Suit

Suit it Up

who said you can’t wear black and navy blue?

In this dark and mysterious palette we should think of the black as the dominant colour and use the navy blue as the ‘feature wall’ as one would do in interior decor.

It’s the two colours that men would never wear together because firstly it’s two dark colours together; secondly they find it very hard to match it up.  The importance of these two colours is to make sure that they are complimentary to each other .

Winter is approaching and that means we need to purchase clothing that has a dark hue.

This look is for those guys who tend to always wear head-to-toe black to most occasions. A way to add a small extra dimension without a “pop of colour”. It’s the best decision for fall because you are allowed to add a few extra layers.

Black and navy looks good together, its sophisticated and it is a great colour combination throughout the year.

 

Do Not:

  • wear brown with black and navy blue
  • add another shade of blue

Upper Echelon Summer ’15 Lookbook

This year around at Str.Crd, i was not surprised one bit with the amount of Cape Town brands which was up in Johannesburg for the biggest urban and street culture event in Mzansi. These guys came through as ”Community Chest” which was brands from  Cape Town that had come together in order to bring up and showcase their brands at the Str.Crd event. One of those brands were ”Upper Echelon”, a brand which i heard of and saw some of the street-wear back when i was still in the Cape Town scene. After seeing the details, inspiration which they had to show at the event said alot about the brand and what they believe in and inspire to stand for.

Upper Echelon is a street couture label aimed at enlightening individuals through designs that tell a story, while simultaneously opening individuals minds to what is relevant and most times overlooked in today’s society.

We would be definitely seeing much more of these guys, and in that we need to keep pushing and supporting the local brands. Check out the latest ”Go Outside” lookbook for Summer ’15.

The range is fully available at ”Boaston Society” and ”Smith and Abrahams”
