You may think you’re looking at stills from a new season of Mad Men or Pan Am, but they’re actually posts from Namibian fashion blogger Loux The Vintage Guru. I discovered this amazing Tumblr via Design Indaba and have become a TAD obsessed.
“The budding fashion designer and all-round exquisitely-dressed dude is making waves with a collective of twenty-something like-minded style innovators to promote the fashion industry in Africa and inspire the art of elegant dressing. The result is a visual delight of unparalleled style that Loux documents on his Tumblr.”
He describes his style as sophisticated-punk. “I fell in love with vintage pieces, especially from the 1960s, and normally alter them to fit me and modernise them in my own way. Most of the suits I wear are actually my late dad’s suits. I wear a hat with every outfit as well as vintage club ties – I think they’re both stylish and respectful.”
Lourens Loux Gebhardt is definitely a name to watch, and i’m also particularly excited to see the progress of his own fashion label.
