Fashion Week Africa Spring/Summer 2015 [Day 1] : Mille Collins

Written by . Posted in +Men, Blog, Buy, Fashion Shows, Features.

With growth comes change. And while change is exciting its not always good… well at least not in this case with Mille Collines. For their latest collection showcased at MB Fashion Week Africa last week, the brand wanted to prove a point it seems. A big bold point in the form of typography and graphics. These were splashed generously on layered t-shirts, the words reading, “Casio”, “Real Internet Cafe” and “Timeless Cuts” to name a few. I’m not sure what it meant but it felt a bit like a protest, a toned down version of Chanel’s Spring 2015 show. It also felt like a more serious take on Moschino’s recent collection’s minus the super colourful, playful and gimmickry vibes of those retro chicken ad-inspired graphics of course.

Compared to last season the brands shift was apparent, from last season’s nomadic look with a fresh take on cuts and silhouettes to this season were the brand went super casual. It didn’t feel right and it was difficult identifying this style with Mille Collines. The idea of chino-like pants paired with those dapper sandals worked but everything else was not my cup of tea.

The only memorable thing were the graphics and typography but ironically those were also the two things I wanted to forget. I wouldn’t know what to say about their women’s wear collection because I for one  was left emotionless. Maybe it was a case of high expectations – following their impressive showcase last year, l expected so much more creatively.
