I met the Rwandan designer Kolbe here in Kigali and asked him about his style and the Rwandan Street Style in general.
The day we met he was wearing one of the suits he designed with a shirt by Topman and a tie by ZARA Man. His shoes are Italian made by the famous Ermenegildo Zegna which is an Italian luxury fashion house that makes men’s clothing and accessories and is very known for creating most expensive Cashmere wool and leather products. His belt is Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) and further accessories are a trendy Swiss Swatch watch and sun glasses from SEBAGO to complete the style of his very fashionable compatible and well-tuned outfit. Rwandans got style!
Asked about the Street Style of other Rwandans, he replied that nowadays the Rwandan Street Style is alive in the local middle class community: “When you attend different local events, you will meet with very smart people who care a lot about what they wear and who spend a lot time on creating and combining their outfits – different brands, colors and inspirations are all taken into consideration when it comes to individualizing your style these days in Rwanda”.
Pleasure meeting with you, Kolbe! Thanks for the quick chat about fashion.
