A look­book that breaks new ground

Lukhanyo Mdingi’s work has been fea­tured ev­ery­where in the past month, and fash­ion­istas, artists and de­sign­ers are trip­ping over them­selves to get a piece of him.

His latest col­lec­tion of star­tling cold, rich im­ages are part of a se­ries called Taint­less, which is the name of his Spring/Sum­mer 2016 col­lec­tion. Be­fore even look­ing at the fash­ion, the qual­ity and cu­ra­tor­ship of the im­ages is breath­tak­ing and, in many ways, has set a new stan­dard for lo­cal look­books, and for Mdingi him­self.

The look­book was styled by Gabrielle Kan­nemeyer and shot by Travys Owen. It show­cases the glam­our and el­e­gance of mod­els Toyin Oneyene and Gandhi Muk­iza.

In an Elle in­ter­view, Mdingi ex­plained the in­spi­ra­tion for the col­lec­tion. “Taint­less is based on Ori­en­tal aes­thet­ics, and uses this as a source to blur the lines be­tween his and her fash­ion.” Check out lukhany­omdingi.co.za
