A Vintage-Style Revolution Is Brewing In Namibia, Africa
By Amanda Mok, 05 Feb 2014
Self-proclaimed hipster who goes by the name ‘Loux the Vintage Guru’ is taking Namibia, Africa by storm, introducing the continent to the wonders of vintage fashion.
The designer, stylist and tailor gives new life to vintage clothing often cast aside derisively as ‘used clothing’ and is often seen all dapper in suits accompanied by a brightly-colored tie and quirky accessories.
As a young boy, he was inspired by his grandfather who once told him, “My son, fashion is what you adopt when you don’t yet know who you are, make sure you are always well-dressed”.
Together with a group of stylists and designers from Johannesburg, they have a street-style website called ‘Khumbala’, that seeks to inspire Africans to step out in style.
