On the road to Zanzibar

We’ve already touched on how you photograph 2012′s tribal fashion trend, and along the way have provided plenty of examples of pieces that are a part of it. But styling it, particularly styling it inline with other 2012 fashion trends is a different ball game altogether.

For that, today we turn to photographer Hicham Riad and stylist Anne Rabeux.

Photographed in Tanzania, Riad’s shoot places model Robin Hölzken amongst settings and architecture that are suburban and rural, and are both at once obviously culturally focussed. But while the pictures are certainly pretty, at this the spring / summer season dawns the value lies not just in their beauty but also in what else they impart. Styling advice. Tips on how to wear this year’s interpretation of tribally-influenced fashion without any of the cliche. From the accessories to the prints, the devil is in the detail.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
