Kwena Baloyi thinks differently about clothes. Where you see a garment (with all your life-long engrained notions of how it should be worn), she sees an opportunity to do things differently. With the idea of winter and layers on her mind, she opted to wear not one but two Thebe Magugu Home Economics head-to-toe looks on top of each other.
It’s the asymmetric suit jacket over the shearling one with the corduroy skirt over the wide-leg suit trousers. The result is a coming together of two of fashion’s favourite hues.
Take a little time to make sure everything is correctly belted, and you’ll find this look is surprisingly wearable and perfect to resist the winter chill. It comes with a warning though: you will be highly susceptible to street style photographers as you make your arrival at any type of fashion or culture-centric event.
Above all, Kwena’s look is a reminder of how much fun you can have with clothes. If there’s anything more exciting than a Thebe jacket, it’s two Thebe jackets On Kwena. You’re witnessing one of Kwena’s signature fashion moments, the kind that position her firmly as a style icon in the making.
