Jaded Life's fashions comprise both bespoke and off the peg pret-a-porter affordable luxury ranges, a highlight being the signature brocade dinner jackets accented with bold batik-style linings. JL's Sofiatown Collection was manufactured in Cape Town using fine grade fabrics and finishes of silk and nappa. Since 2012 JL has manufactured in London and will exhibit at forthcoming fashion shows in the U.K. such as the BFC London Collections Men. Moreover, the Translucent Futures and recent Anime Noir as featured in Vogue morph into the repurposed Eclecticism Collection being exhibited at the AW18/19 Pure showcase as part of the Jaded Life Hub collective initiative: see NEWS:13/2/18. Last Christmas, the JLH cluster and associated pop-up shop nights were inaugurated at the Sanderson Hotel as Fashion-Bound events. Fashion events management is the allied focus of activity, encompassing such corporate branded showcases as the Converse Optimistic Rebels campaign and well-received Cape Town Fashion Police show as well as the recent Ladies' Polo Day at Westcroft Polo Club (featured showreels and photos in NEWS). Sibu's pictured here wearing a trademark gold nappa leather finished asymmetrical DJ (there is a silver nappa grey herringbone counterpart on the rail) while Peter's in a tweed casual jacket over a JL t-shirt. Urban sportswear 'athleisure' based ranges were unveiled at Pure as well as a couture capsule collection under the designer's signature Sibu Dladla label. Looking forward, the Jaded Life Hub cluster will develop as a social enterprise programme benefitting recent fashion design alumni and emerging start-up labels while we will also resume a retail presence of a flagship shop.
