Good god, we were all over Nasir Mazhar’s SS13 collection like Pince Harry cavorting with nekked ladies in Vegas.
Showcased at the uber cool Topshop Show Space (our fave LFW hangout this season), it was Mazhar’s first foray into garms from accessories, celebrating ‘the interconnectedness of fashion and music’ – a recurring theme in this dude’s work.
Upon entering the ‘Mazhar Barbershop’, you may well have thought you’d detoured via East London (Mazhar’s actual manor) where all the cool kids are, for it was all 90s asthetics, rapping MCs – hello Merky Ace, Kozzie, Faze Miyake, NoLay, Marger and Flirta D – and old skool sportswear. YEA BOI.
As well as the badass hi-tops, we at Le Blow loved the cartoony elements to the collection: pink fun fur skirts, mini-backpacks, mesh tops and slogan T-shirts. In fact, it was all very Neneh Cherry meets Shampoo in the early 90s and we ruddy loved it.
That ‘SEX’ cropped T-shirt? It’s literally The Sex. We’ll take one each, thanks.
