Namibia Retro Vintage Style by Loux Lourens Vakwetu

Namibia may not be the fashion capital of the world but it’s on the brinks of breaking through the African fashion revolution slowly waving through the world. Self-Taught Fashion Guru has inspired Vintage Style in Namibia. Lourens Loux Gebhardt, who goes by Loux the Vintage Guru has perfected the art of thrift shopping and styling for the fashionistas in Namibia. He’s taken advantage of his father’s generation style and added a modern twist to men styling.

Though Loux admitted that money is an issue when trying to find success in fashion, he has perfected the art of buying inexpensive clothing and coming off as wealthy. He says, “A lot of the vendors [here] don’t really realise the value of what they’re selling because many people aren’t interested in wearing vintage, they just see it as ‘used clothing’… I manage to dress myself cheaply and end up looking like a million bucks.”

The designer, stylist, and tailor is consumed by his enthusiasm for fashion, something that has been growing within him since his childhood. As a young boy in Africa, Loux’s grandfather once told him, “My son, fashion is what you adopt when you don’t yet know who you are, make sure you are always well-dressed” and he has kept his words of advice with him all these years. Now, in addition to seeking out vintage clothing and dressing for success on a daily basis, he shares his gift of style with others.

Loux is currently collaborating with Khumbula, a group of stylists and designers from Johannesburg, South Africa, to “show the fashion world that we can unite as one in the African continent.” He says, “When we collaborate we call ourself LIA (Love is African) and we’re currently playing a big part by simply inspiring fashionistas around the African continent.”
