Hung up on fashion

‘She wore a short skirt and a tight sweater and her figure described a set of parabolas that could cause cardiac arrest in a yak,’ quipped Woody Allen. There’s no denying that clothing can be the making - or the unmaking - of man.

This issue, Obrigado enters into some sartorial skirmishes
and uncovers its inner fashion victim.

In the latest issue

  • Under construction

    70_fashion21.jpgSouth African style mavens have been flocking to fashion weeks around the country to see local gladiators strut their stuff in the fashion arena. Emma Jordan wonders if they are going to show us their mettle, or whether it is just about bling.

    Is it just about bling?

  • Rock stars and their cars

    70_car2.jpgThere's something about song writing that fires the troubadour tendencies of getting the hell out of where you are. And seeing that since the turn of the last century horses are either for racing or glue, tudor caradoc-davies reckons 'getting out of here' is going to happen in a car…

    A match between musicians and motoring.

  • Music reviews

    70_aking.jpgAfter the 'next big thing' hype subsides. After the SAMA snubs. After the international breakthrough is postponed. What happens to a hip, young Bellville City rock band whose 'Dutch Courage' becomes 'Against All Odds' alienation? If you're aKING, you go back to basics.

    Check out this and other recent releases.
