The collection by the Darkie label (Cape Town-based Themba Mngonezulu) is a breath of fresh air. This is ghetto thrift store chic with a humorous, funky edge, with his male models dressed in craftily re-worked suits, jackets and shirts looking as if they just crawled from an Alex shebeen. His womenswear features beautifully made skirts using kitsch old ties and lots of feminine layers using interesting, pretty fabrics.
