AFROPUNK TEAMS UP WITH VINTAGE ZIONIST FOR THEIR SA FASHION WEEK DEBUT






Press Release & Images supplied by Maria McCloy 

Vintage Zionist, a clothing brand based in downtown Johannesburg’s burgeoning arts district, Maboneng Precinct, on Friday the 27th of November, collaborated with AFROPUNK for their debut capsule collection at South African Fashion Week AW18 in Johannesburg. The collection will go on sale at AFROPUNK festivals worldwide, starting at AFROPUNK Joburg, December 30 and 31.

Designers Oscar Ncube and Mandy Newman push the boundaries of style with their Rock and Roll-inspired designs. The monochromatic collection applies a canvas of doodled artwork and slogans onto the clothing perfectly curated for the outspoken and opinionated AFROPUNK community. The story and origins of the PUNK aesthetic are graphically told on ripped and distressed tees featuring photographic images of elaborate punk-esc hairstyles, tattoos and piercings from African tribesmen and women.

The AFROPUNK x Vintage Zionist collaboration collection, with footwear by Dr. Martens and the support of the House Of Martell was followed by an afterparty at Sally Mustang in Kramerville, Sandton.

For three centuries the House of Martell, in curious pursuit of its ultimate craft, has redefined the code with new blends, new designs, and new expressions. Both Martell and AFROPUNK are about redefining the “code” and perusing the unconventional. Celebrating and inspiring people to go beyond the conventional, to be curious of themselves and the world, and in doing so, defying conventions.

AFROPUNK is an influential community of young people of all backgrounds speaking ​through music, art, film, lifestyle, sports, fashion and photography. “For over 13 years, AFROPUNK has been defining culture in the music world, a triumph of multiculturalism and diversity for people of all races, genders, colours, creeds and tastes. AFROPUNK happens in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Paris and London, and we are so proud to be coming to Joburg at the amazing Constitution Hill on 30 and 31 December. In the build up to that, we are partnering with young South Africans doing great things in the culture space, like Vintage Zionist,” says AFROPUNK’s Matthew Morgan.
AFROPUNK at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg on the 30th and 31st of December will feature Solange, Laura Mvula, King Tha vs. Blk Jks, Theo Parrish, The Brother Moves On, Spoek Mathambo, Black Motion, Gods Sons & Daughters, Manthe Ribane & OKZharp, DJ Lag, Urban Village, Nakhane Toure, Nonku Phiri and TCIYF, with more performers set to be announced.
