Maylee Launches Online

Late in 2016 we introduced you to Maylee, the debut womenswear collection of Melissa Kieser. According to Kieser, the brand and this collection in particular plays on the idea of mixing highs and lows – simple classic fits with high end fabrics, also focusing on refined silhouettes with contrasting relaxed cottons and twills. Since its introduction, the brand’s been operating out of its exclusive showroom on Sir Lowry Road, but this month it’s stepped up to launch the full debut collection on it’s online store for countrywide shipping. Now there’s no excuse not to empty that bank account before payday.... Read more

New Track. MISSU x Tré Flips x Red Robyn – Colours

Remember MISSU? Fresh out of Durban, the production moniker of Sean Ross most recently delivered us ‘Sunday’, a tasty track featuring Durban-born, Cape Town-bred rapper Jonn. Yesterday he slipped out another number via his Soundcloud, once agains recruiting some 031 talent into the mix. Jonty Hurd’s Tré Flips makes an appearance on the track alongside Red Robyn. It’s easy, slow, and tight, just like we like ’em. Follow MISSU here. Read more

Watch adidas Originals’ ‘ORIGINAL is never finished’

One of our very favourite top international streetwear brands from Day One, adidas Orignals, dropped one of their finest films to date yesterday – the best part?

The campaign explores the philosophy behind adidas Originals, encouraging a new generation of creators to redefine what originality means. In the same way as adidas Originals is a constant work in progress, true creativity is never finished. The... Read more

Watch Cute Couple Perform ‘Noble Rot’ and ‘Tired of Feeling Lonely’ Live

We’ve finally forgiven Mark Reichardt and Conor McCarthy for giving up Aztec Sapphire – a band that will long live on in our hearts, even if they’ve dissolved in reality – because they’re doing such an excellent job with Cute Couple. The duo has been offering music under the moniker for close on two years, refining a singular style which takes the intentional naivety of their previous lyrical exploits and matches it with soulful, playful, melodious ballads. It’s simple and it’s wonderful and it’s perfected by Reichardt’s unadulterated vocals. In September last year a very special performance went down at... Read more

AKJP Spring/Summer 17

Old WAA favourite Kent Andreasen was given the reigns on AKJP’s latest lookbook, and with summer in full swing, it’s the only thing we want to wear. The traditionally menswear-based brand has branched out for several seasons into a rapidly more androgynous seasonal collection, now featuring womenswear in its own right – although the lines are naturally ad beautifully blurred. Designer Keith Henning and artist Jody Paulsen’s collaborative label’s latest offering is a lush alternative to summer offerings, with a simple range of relaxed, loose-fitting pieces, suitable for a tropical life of wealthy elegance. Think Helmut Newton’s 1970’s pool side... Read more

Angel Ho Blesses Us with ‘Obeisance’

Sure, 2016 didn’t treat us to much, but it brought Angel-Ho‘s goodness into the limelight in a new way and for that, we are grateful. The DJ/producer co-founder of NON Records sources his taste and influence from a range of R&B and bass music delivered in a new, fresh format, whilst using it as a tool to ‘articulate the recurring violence on non-white bodies.’ The budding producer kicked off 2017 with a over six-minute offering entitled ‘Obeisance’; ‘a gesture you do to show appreciation, joy or gratitude. Its a salute to all the legends that inspired me in my production... Read more
