The ALCAW16 collection presents a layered, personalised way of dress, focusing on interchangeable and versatile menswear pieces. The use of panelling and textural detailing is inspired by the graphic nature and use of colour in uMblaselo traditional Zulu attire, which was a strong reference for Amanda in previous menswear collections.
Similarly, the colour palette is a combination of contemporary relevance and retrospective of the menswear label as it started out in the nineties. The range incorporates primary hues of navy, black, off-white and cream with shades of dove grey, taupe, olive and camel - punctuated with landscape-inspired pop colours of terracotta, mustard and sea green.
Key items in the AW16 collection are the Woven T-shirt and Build-Your-Jacket. Each garment demonstrates highly functional detailing showcased in wraps, ties and stitching.
