Hello beautiful ones of the Most High! Are you all doing well? How was your weekend? My weekend was pretty chilled and I spent most of my time at home. I took my bicycle out for a spin on Saturday and got to catch up with my friend Gugu who I haven’t seen in the longest time. I finally got to meet her daughter and she is the cutest, sweetest, most entertaining young Queen ever, lol. We spent time with her family and it really was a great afternoon.
Sundays are for church, you know it! I got time to join my dance family at Pedro Portia before they head off to Angola this week. got a couple of good dances in, I am happy. Are you ready to meet our male feature for the week? Let’s do it!
Hi Male Feature …..tell us something about yourself
My full names are Bryan Chisha Manda but I go by Bryan and my close friends call me Bryo. I’m a Zambian Fashion & lifestyle blogger, stylist, a writer/poet still perfecting my craft. All in all I am an all-round creative. I reside in Lusaka.
Ah, nice! How would you describe your style?
First and foremost let me just put it out there, I’m fascinated by fashion, clothes or simply fabric! My style leans towards a more vintage appeal and streetwear, ready to wear, edgy and quite unapologetic. I say this because I like to think “I wear clothes & they don’t wear me” it’s unapologetic because it’s not quite ordinary. I believe what makes my style unique is my confidence to pull it off.
What or who inspires or influences your style?
My style is inspired by so many things that I see, by certain individuals, even the environment & nature. I’m inspired by many fashion enthusiasts on Instagram like Darion Famous, Trevor Stuurman, Francis Buseko, Okdeon etc. Celebrities like ASAP Rocky, David Beckham, Solange and many others also inspire me to add something to my personal style. Fashion Brands like Gucci, Rich Mnisi, Versace are also a huge style inspiration to me. Local creatives and brands also play a huge role in my personal style.
The one thing every man should have….
This is hard to single out one thing lol but I’ll say a well tailored suit.
What are some of your closet favourites?
– white sneakers (vans & converse all-stars)
– A trench coat (it does so much)
– A simple white shirt
– Well tailored pants
– Ripped jeans or jeans in general.
– Vintage shirts.
