Two years after singling her out as one of our biggest style influencers in the country, Lootlove sustains her position as one of South Africa’s best dressed female celebrities.

One girl who’s not tying herself down to any pre-approved fad, we continue to admire how she’s beautifully distilled her authentic aesthetic in both her enviable wardrobe and bomb brand.

And right at the start of 2018, the media darling pledged to focus on streamlining her inevitable modelling career, an option that appears to have always been on the cards for the tall, slim and stylish trendsetter.

In an industry where most celebrities continue expressing their style within parameters of a social convention that typically prioritises a monotonous outlook on high-end fashion as synonymous with beauty pageantry,  we’ve been drawn to Lootlove’s authentic playful and empowered expression of femininity. As in, thanks for someone who’s able to switch things up and down as per her own standard.

Proving in the process, sigh, that’s it’s not necessarily always a choice between sheer cocktail dresses and gowns.

The 28-year-old beaut certainly knows how to shift gears and rebelliously sport between soft, chic and fashion forward couture with the same ability she’s able to rock streetwear and androgynous realness without any questions.

Having appeared on several fashion magazine covers in recent weeks, her intention to consciously craft a niche within the modelling and fashion industry is without a doubt a thing of destiny, as her authentic style continues to delight the masses.

Inspired by adidas’ global network of female athletes, the Statement Collection offers stand-out looks curated for women who take a diverse approach to training and demand performance wear as versatile as they are.

Adidas statement collection

More than 15 complimentary pieces feature in the collection – including bras, tights, jackets, footwear and accessories, which come together to inspire bold training looks from street to studio. Floral camo and geometric prints inspired by Stella McCartney feature dynamic designs and cooling fabrics for maximum style and performance, whatever the workout.

  • Different strap styles and removable padding to keep athletes covered and dry

DON’T REST BRA

STRONGER FOR IT BRA

  • High-level support system also for large cup bra sizes
  • Built-in shape limits bounce during athlete’s hardest workouts
  • Adjustable and convertible straps for customized styling

The curation of the collection was inspired by Dua Lipa, Karlie Kloss, Shay Mitchell, Hannah Bronfman and Garbiñe Muguruza.

Inside Gert-Johan Coetzee’s ‘Recession Proof’ Ready To Wear Autumn ’19 Collection

Top South African designer Gert-Johan Coetzee is bringing high fashion chic garb for style lovers navigating life during tough economic conditions.

Gert Johan Coetzee Autumn 2019

It’s common sense that when money is tight, people tighten their belts and cut down on luxuries. And with more petrol price increases looming and a technical recession making everyone nervous, it is a hard time to be selling luxury goods… or is it?

For designer Gert-Johan Coetzee, taking the economy in his stride – even poking gentle fun at money worries –  is a business challenge that he is relishing. In his new Autumn Winter 2019 Collection that is showcasing at SA Fashion Week, the focus is on more affordable ready to wear, but also a brand-new line of menswear, including underwear and swimwear.

“There might be economic reasons to be gloomy, but there is no time like a downturn to really sharpen your focus and identify the things that are most important in your business…and the reality is that people still want to feel good, and look good, even when their budget shrinks,” said Coetzee.

“With this collection we have thought carefully about new product categories, and while our elaborate showstopping red-carpet and bridal gowns will always be our greatest joy, we can bring the designer touch within more people’s reach with our ready-to-wear Gert line, and by targeting male clients, with suits but also with smaller luxury items such as the beautiful new Gert men’s underwear.”

Coetzee has had a year of milestones, starting with his 30th birthday last November. His passion for education and empowering the next generation got a shot in the arm this year with his role as the mentor on South Africa’s first season of Project Runway, where his expertise and fair, good-natured input kept the frazzled contestants on track to produce their best work.

His own bursary programme runs in collaboration with the Northwest School of Design, is now in its eighth year, and two new students will be chosen next month to start their fashion studies free of charge next year.

The students in the programme are all personally mentored by Coetzee. “I am absolutely committed to pass on the knowledge that I have gained, because I want a South African fashion industry full of skilled, passionate designers who can make a living doing what they love, like me.” He is dedicating this new AW19 collection to his bursary students, some of whom will be working behind the scenes at SAFW getting his new collection on the ramp, and, he says, it is about having faith in the future of the industry and the power of education.

Investing in a menswear range has already paid off for Coetzee, who has been able to say yes when asked to dress Beyoncé’s father Dr Mathew Knowles and his wife Gena Knowles for a number of events in the past week. The couple was in South Africa to promote Knowles’s new book The Emancipation of Slaves Through Music.

The influential music mogul hosted the African Leaders 4 Change Awards,and was a guest judge on the music talent show Idols South Africa. In between, he also managed to address the University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business and finally, attend the glamorous opening party for South African Fashion Week hosted by Cruz Vodka.

Coetzee’s new AW19 Collection is inspired by his travels, his love for Italian style as personified by the luxury of Ferrari, and he has built on his previous collection for McDonald’s by further exploring pop iconography. In addition to his trademark red-carpet showstoppers and the new menswear range, fans can expect playful references to stop signs and other road markings – “STOP worrying about the recession,” Coetzee quips.

The Gert-Johan Coetzee AW19 showcase took place at SA Fashion Week on Thursday 25 October, at the Protea Court Rooftop at Sandton City
