Bend down Select! See the full Yaba-inspired A/W 2017 by Mai Atafo at South Africa Menswear Week

BellaNaija Style



The South Africa Menswear week for the Autumn/Winter 2017 season wrapped up yesterday and Mai Atafo was one of the showcasing talents at the three-day event.

The latter part of the show was signature Mai, but it was the beginning of the show that was the most exciting. It featured fun denim looks with painted Yaba market lingo like ‘wash and wear’ or ‘bend down select’ on them.

See the collection below.

    The idea is great. But he needs greater discipline to execute it fully. Some of the pieces are fire but some others not so much. As inspirations go, the pieces don’t need to literally wear them as inscriptions on their sleeves.

      Comment spot on. This the best idea I have seen from him since he statrted it was original and not copied . His execution wasn’t as flawless as I expected and the collection should have been 100% bendown select and left out the suits for another collection it was abbot confusing. I love the shirts and would go with the the denim. More originality is what we need . Inspiration is everywhere around us ife pay attention
