Tomorrow KLûK CGDT showcases their SS16 collection at CAAM Gallery in De Waterkant. In anticipation for the big reveal – our lips are sealed but know this: the designers have collaborated with Levi’s and nine local photographers and a videographer in what is going to be the highlight of fashion week <if we do say so ourselves>. In the run-up to the big day, we had some fun playing 10 questions with Malcolm and Christiaan.
If you weren’t a fashion designer, what would you be?
C: A puppy.
Three words to describe your SS16 collection…
Exclusive, quality, luxury.
And the inspiration for this one?
We were inspired by our recent trip to Tokyo and the trinkets we brought back as souvenirs like the second-hand Yakuza bowling jacket and vintage kimonos. We also wanted to go back to the reason we started in fashion, which is the handcraft like what we saw in the Japanese boutiques.
Christiaan, who cuts your hair?
Lyndsay at Halo.
Malcolm, who does Yohji prefer? (Yohji is their miniature schnauzer.)
Better be me.
What’s the atmosphere in the studio like this week?
It is the first time a collection has been mostly finished before a show and we actually had time to do our regular work.
De Meye in Stellenbosch.
Tell us something about your partner that we might not know.
M: Christiaan is younger but more mature.
C: Malcolm is older and wiser.
What does s a typical Friday night look like for you?
Either dinner with family or early to bed with family (Yohji).
One item every woman should invest in for the coming season?
