Remember these futuristic fashion flexes? [photos]

It’s officially a year since the South African entertainment industry lost one of its most talented – and fashionable stars; Riky Rick.

Despite being 34 years young when he passed, the Stay Shining hitmaker accumulated a wealth of fashion knowledge and was years ahead of his time.

Face mask on fleek

Before Covid-19 existed or Kanye West and co. started wearing bizarre face coverings, Riky Rick rocked up on the 2018 SAMA red carpet wearing an orange mesh face mask.

The look stole the spotlight and kickstarted the viral #RikyRick challenge.

Everybody gets sneakers!

From petrol attendants to avid fans to Pearl Thusi’s daughter Thandolwethu, Riky was Santa Claus when it game to gifting away free designer sneakers.

Men wear pink – and sandals – too!

Riky Rick was comfortable with his masculinity and was able to pull off feminine fashion looks with ease and style.

It also gave my face a taut, lifted effect — not tight or uncomfortable, but firm and defined.

It has a satisfyingly thick, putty-like texture that’s dotted with crushed cranberry seeds for manual exfoliation. It doesn’t take much to cover the face, so the product lasts a long time.

Skin Proud’s Proud Pods

If you haven’t tried out squalene yet, there’s no time like the present. Made with 100 per cent plant-based squalene, these serum capsules are ideal for use when travelling. After cleansing, open one of the ampoules and then distribute the contents evenly across the face and neck, once per day, followed by a layer of moisturiser.

When skin seems particularly dry, a face mask is often the key to restoring hydration. Made with broad-spectrum CBD, bakuchiol oil, willow bark extract, and kaolin, this indulgent product is packed full of nourishing goodness for even the driest of complexions.
