Kaokoland Menswear Collection – Spring Summer 2011
Natural selection through the ages has carved the Himbas impressive physiques and allows them to pull off rather daring ensembles, like this one, with aplomb.
Refreshingly, Himba men are not shy of the odd statement accessory.
Their tiered skirts are made simply using two pieces of fabric, one for the front and one for the back. These are held in elaborate ruffles with a belt. Lachlan is planning on giving this look a whirl when we get back to Blighty.
Single Himba men wear their hair in a mohawk-ish braid called an 'ondatu'. The longer the tail at the back, the longer they have been waiting for the right girl. Clearly, this dude's getting desperate.
