THE WATERMELON SOCIAL CLUB
A forward-thinking streetwear brand, The Watermelon Social Club uses street wear aesthetics as a tool to connect with people, to talk about culture and create a place where people belong. Casually elegant and super easy to wear while making a statement, this brand’s A/W 2022 collection in its bright cobalt and emerald ensures you’ll be noticed.

Umsweko is inspired by African nature and its quintessential culture and this brand aims to create a cross-cultural exchange through design, by combining African traditions with a contemporary design ethic. We love the earthy tones and classic tailoring – with a twist – in this A/W 2022 collection.

A brand that prides itself on recycling and upcycling, with plenty hand stitching and other embellishments adding to the appeal of the end products, no wonder Vanclan won the Scouting Menswear 2022 prize at AW Fashion Week 2022. Showcasing bold colour and an eccentric and playful take on design, this collection is truly a metaphor for South Africa’s ‘Rainbow Nation’!

Marquin Simpson is a Cape Town-based menswear and streetwear designer known for their emphasis on textured fabrics. The brand’s attention to detail is very effective, their ethos of sustainability is commendable. Their key focus is to use fashion design as a vehicle to create awareness of social and environmental issues we face daily. As for us, this was one of our overall favourite collections and we absolutely adore the textured knits, patchwork and blue colour palette!

Functional, elegant and beautifully tailored, Ntando XV strives to recreate classic styles and give them a contemporary twist. The silhouettes of this A/W 2022 collection is nothing short of inspired and we love the injection of bold red into a predominantly neutral palette.

Inspired by geometric structure and modern industrial architecture, Boyde’s A/W 2022 collection is beautifully proportioned, seamlessly tailored and infinitely covetable. We adore the classic colour palette and thought that the addition of a splash of cobalt is inspired! These minimalist ensembles are lifestyle pieces that are brilliant additions to any wardrobe.

Saint Vuyo is a brand that tells a convincing tale of an African clan – tartan and all! This A/W 2022 collection is masterfully executed and is fit for kings and clansmen alike! We adore the asymmetrical layering and theatrical plaids, the use of traditional sportswear textiles and earthy coloured patchwork.

Functional, practical and at the same time wonderfully aesthetic, Richard Hoy’s streetwear brand is a delight. The pieces are beautifully tailored, youthful, fun and sporty. We love the twists on the classics: a jacket with a furry surface worn over sturdy cargo shorts is inspired!

REFUSE CLOTHING BRAND
This brand cleverly fuses traditional African aesthetic with contemporary design. The result is a ready-to-wear collection – like their wonderful A/W 2022 collection – that is colourful, striking and one-of-a-kind. We love the sports- and streetwear element that is ever-present and adore the patchwork and padding.
