Namibia’s Hipsters: From the sapeurs of Kinshasa, the fashionistas of Lagos and to the streets of Jozi, vintage style is trending in Africa.
Designer, tailor and stylist Lourens Loux Gebhardt of Loux the Vintage Guru is now collaborating with Khumbala, a group of stylists and designers from Johannesburg, to launch a street-style website that seeks to inspire Africans to step out in style and introduce them to the merits of vintage fashion.
A fashion revolution in the making; “When we collaborate we call ourselves LIA (Love is African), and we’re currently playing a big part by simply inspiring fashionistas around the African continent.”
Usually decked out in well-cut 60’s suits, tweed jackets, round spectacles and trilby hats, Lourens explains, “Many people aren’t interested in wearing vintage, they just see it as used clothing… I manage to dress myself cheaply and end up looking like a million bucks.”

My African heart feels so warm right now
Q:I'm having a hard time embracing my skin tone. I'm dark skinned and I went to the beach yesterday and a cousin of mine (who's lighter than me) proceeded to say "get under an umbrella you don't want to get any darker" it just makes me sad. I'm considering bleaching my skin.
Sweetie pie let me remind you tat the most beautiful woman on Girlfriends was the darkest one
One of the biggest models in the world is dark brown
Not to mention Lupita is literally the most beautiful person in the world
so please tell your hating ass cousin to kiss your beautiful black ass
