Loux the Vintage Guru is a Namibian local, who is a fashion enthusiast, vintage style blogger and an active member of The Sartorialist.
Markham spotted his great collections that were featured by GQ magazine this week and we caught up with the vintage fashion guru.
Why do you love vintage gear?
I wear vintage clothes because it dates me back to the legendary era of my ancestors. I love vintage clothes because they make look different, unique and very stylish. Vintage clothes have a very powerful attraction.
What is your MUST HAVE fashion item?
What items did you choose from Markham and why?
I chose mostly denim, and when I buy from Markham, I will always buy a full equation (pants + shirt + jacket) and then mix and match them with other pieces. I love wearing denim because it’s easy to care for and doesn’t require a lot of cleaning, hence they last for a long time.
Loux pairs a pair of Markham pants with Relay Jeans sneakers and traditional print. Adding in a vintage cap and aviator sunglasses, give this look it’s retro feel.
Denim is king, with Loux pairing a pair of rip and repair Relay Jeans denim with a classic Relay Jeans denim trucker jacket.
