Ruald Rheeder Runway Collection
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Johannesburg 2014
Fashion has become even more important for men in South Africa and it’s vital to be aware of what is happenning in the fashion industry, not only locally, but on an international level”
For the autumn winter 2014 collection… I have followed the theme which is “Creative Freedom”. This collection is a visit to the dark side. We all have our inner demons and I’ve decided to unleash them all in a collection that is breaking boundaries for men in South Africa. It speaks of freedom that expresses uniqueness and embodies a lifestyle beyond the ordinary.

My thoughts on the collection...
I have always been a fan of the work of Ruald Rheeder. This collection definitely showcased the more darker and mysterious side. The use of a wide variety of materials and textures work well together and compliment the entire range. One would expect that there is not much that can be done with the black, grey and white. But once again, by use of all the different fabrics this collection comes alive and each item is so unique on its own, yet all items work so well together in the collection.
