Today I think I proved to myself that it pays off to keep up with the fashion grads for the benefit of personal style. Last weekend, one of the deets that I picked up at the La Cambre class of 2008 in Brussels were the skinny floral pants that I saw in the menswear collection of Mansour Badjoko Wa Lileko. It was one of my favourite collections for the reason that he was doing something quite fresh for menswear. For selfish reasons though, I did end up craving a pair of skinny floral pants.
So today, I lucked out at the Concrete relocation sale with these Sophia Malig mixed floral print velour leggings. I think velour and mixed print should be pretty horrific and off-putting for most people but I just conjured visions of pairing it up with a hefty bit of grey and sharp shirts a la Mansour’s collection ‘Neat and Tight’. Malig is a designer that was a LFW regular a few years back so it was also nice to find an old bit of her stuff in the sale.
