We’ve rounded up the top five most loved items from the AFI Boutique for this week. These looks not only reflect African design excellence but are also in keeping with the latest trends seen on international runways in 2021.
After being featured at number three on last week’s Top 5 list, these loose-fit, pleated pants got to the top spot this week! Pants with bold prints are one of the major fashion trends for 2021, with brands like Helmstedt and Lacoste presenting a selection of these, in the recent Copenhagen and Paris Fashion Weeks.
This military-inspired garment from Mahone makes for an excellent classic staple in your wardrobe. The luxury fashion brand’s latest release is titled, “The Zebra Collection,” which we got a sneak peek of on Channel O when presenter Mpumi Mlambo wore it on screen before it was officially released.
Urban Zulu’s Muhle Top
The Muhle top is fresh off the runway from the brand Urban Zulu collection. The brand is known for designs inspired by celebrities and pop culture. And Urban Zulu designer Papy Kaluw believes every moment in life is an opportunity to show off your best threads.
The mini Cleo dress from Gentleman Era is fun, flirty, and definitely in keeping with the floral trend seen in the latest collections of designers like Erdem, Rodarte, and Anna Sui.
