The Accessorie’s Accessory: Nato/Zulu Watch Straps

I’ve always thought that some pieces, particularly Time Pieces, should not be altered in any way or else they lose their charm or their sophistication….. well, I WAS WRONG!!!! Check these NATO/ZULU watch straps, I now strongly feel that every watch owner needs to have a pair of interchangable straps. Unfortunately these are not available in South African stores but im sure for us seeking to bring a whole lot of life to our old pieces, we will make a way to get strapped!!

 

REDOKER

We at Y’SLF&Co. love leather goods purely because of their durability and the way they age beautifully, plus they last forever!!

Now when it comes to backpacks, we, in South Africa have always been starved of good quality stylish leather backpacks, we’ve always just drooled over them in European magz and style pics doing the rounds, now thats where REDOKER comes in, I’ve had the opportunity to meet one of the founders of this company at a pop-up store in Sandton City and on display was some of the most beautiful handcrafted leather bags I have ever seen in S.A. and the price was just right as well! S/O to REDOKER for seeing the need and providing the goods!!! yeah, S/O to Chapel Clothing as well, they also produce quality backpacks in the dopest colour ways ever!!!

To order yourself a REDOKER piece just pop over to their online store and I promise you will not be disappointed!

The Equestrian look is undoubtedly a popular look for the ladies in South Arica this winter! the only problem is some ladies just don’t know how to pull the whole look off! believe us, it not just about tucking your pants or jeans in your boots, its way more that.

Ladies, if at all you doubt your own styling skill or are just not too sure of how you’re supposed to put the steeze together, don’t stress, Y’SLF&Co.’s got your back, believe us, you will never go wrong with this classic colour, fit and texture combination…. this is how you do it……

These are truly classics! some if the pioneers of the preppy era, we believe no wardrobe is complete without these……. penny loafers!!!

We’ve seen so many variants these classics, from diff colours to diff textures but all prep enthusiasts agree that penny loafers are a def must have!!!

ladies loafers from Nine West and the men’s from Trenery.

YSL set to change iconic brand!

ImageWe know it sounds more dramatic than it really is, but lets face the the facts, some brands have built up a pretty strong brand equity and a religious following from signature images that represent it, i.e the L.V. monogram, the interlocking “G’s” for Gucci, same formula used by Yves Saint Laurent with their iconic interlocking YSL signature.

A couple of hours ago YSL, under the new Directorship of Hedi Slimane announced that the iconic YSL signature will be dropped and re-branded for their new ready-to-wear collection, Saint Laurent Paris (SLP), that is the new brand that will be highlighted in future for their collections, although they say the iconic YSL signature will not be immediately dropped, but we will definitely be seeing less of it.

Your’SeLF&Company. is a bit ambiguous about the name change but we do trust that the fashion house will deliver nothing less than the fashion forward, high quality and esthetically appeasing pieces that the world loves to wear and has been wearing for decades.
