ETHETICS Episode 2: MDINGI COUTTS
In the second episode of Ethetics we showcase standout looks from the Lukyanho Mdingi & Nicholas Coutts A/W16 Tactile Collection in three different South African landscapes, from a barren desert to a lush mountainside on models Gandhi Mukiza and Yannick Konan. The MDINGI COUTTS A/W17 Tactile Collection was showcased at the Generation Africa show produced by Pitti Immagine and the Ethical Fashion Initiative. With Coutts’s distinct weaving technique and Mdingi’s traditionalist approach to minimalism and classic basics; the two used Africa’s natural landscape as a means to conceptualize the overall aesthetic of the collection.
