South African street wear brand, Skhanda World (SW), has just launched their latest range – a fresh new collection of winter wearables. Known for its signature colour palette, the clothing label releases a total of 5 sophisticated pieces in the collection with 3 tracksuits in black, white, and aqua as well as 2 long sleeve t-shirts in black and white.
Influenced by Ntokozo “K.O” Mdluli and his business partner, Tsholofelo Moremedi’s international travels, this unique range takes inspiration from global street wear trends that are yet to infiltrate the South African apparel landscape. Most notable about the winter drop is the use of minimalistic design to bring attention to the statement detail in each piece. The long sleeve t-shirts sport the characteristic SW colour flair in a subtle blocked patch on the side arms while the focus is on a gripping skull centered on the chest. Paying a closer look at this art piece you realise that the lines are an artistic interpretation of the South African flag.
The tracksuit, which we all need with this scathing cold, is a stunning combo in singular colours while the “SW” letters dance across the top and bottoms staying true to the label’s colour splash style. Suffice it to say that the minimalist design of the tracksuits allow for the top and bottom to be restyled with anything in your wardrobe which is always a win. These kinds of pieces also give you flexible wear by either keeping it clean or layering your outfit without risk of overdressing.
In the competitive world of streetwear, SW is indeed keeping its name more than relevant by not only drawing from global trends but constantly keeping their uniqueness close to home with every release. This collection is sure to fly off the shelves as it hits the mark in today’s need for agile streetwear that can go from the streets to casual day at the office. Make sure to support proudly South African wear and get the range in selected Studio 88 stores across South Africa today.
