Keexs, Nigerian shoe brand, and South African-based Afrikanswiss, a denim brand, recently collaborated on a new collection for South African fashion week 2017.
The fashion week took place at the Hyde Park corner in Johannesburg on March 31.
The new spring/summer 2017 collection “Naija man in Soweto” tells the story of a modern merge of cultures, with interesting pieces like the denim ‘fila’ to the denim embroidered ‘buba’.
The Keexs sneaker collection with art curated by self-taught artist, Lemi Ghariokwu, draws inspiration and pays tribute to the legendary Fela Anikulapo–Kuti, the pioneer of Afrobeat.
The Afrikanswiss collection fused Nigerian traditional wear with pantsula street wear.
The Keexs and Afrikanswiss collection will be available in select retail stores in Nigeria and South Africa.
