I See A Different You


I feel a bit like I am hovering in no space lately. I deal with this particular brand of despondence by touching my roots and culture so I will be blogging Africa and Japan all for the next few days. It's going to be a soul-full week at Worshipblues.

Let's kick things off with a bit of Africa-Style!

I have long thought that my fellow Africans are real dapper dans for where else but in Africa can you find a "cult of clothing"? 
I mentioned the undeniably stylish "sapeurs" of Brazzaville, Congo, way back in 2010 and my admiration for their relentless elegance still holds fast.

To further celebrate Africa's style credentials, I have to divulge one of my favourite style blog EVER! I've been following "I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU" for a while now but have been a bit selfish in not sharing. However, now that I have, they can blow your mind too.









I SEE A DIFFERENT YOU is Justice Mukheli, Innocent Mukheli and Vuyo Mpantsha who hail from South Africa and blog from Soweto, Pimville, Benmore, Sandton. Their widescreen photos are really remarkable and their style is influenced by photos of their parents and grandparents.

I am inspired by their moto “.... to change the perception of what the world thinks of Soweto and South Africa, and Africa as a whole.”

  4. I had no idea you had a connection to Africa, Yasumi - I'm officially intrigued :) Although I'm also very distracted by the beautiful photos from I See a Different You. When I think of Soweto, the last thing that comes to mind is style; I think I've seen one too many documentaries on Al-Jazeera English! I'm glad I have someone like you to help change my perceptions, I'm off to indulge in some wonderful menswear style now :)
    xox,
    Cee
