Sibot Unveils V.L.D.T’s Second Instalment

This week saw one of our favourite veterans of the game, electronic pioneer Sibot, present his latest offering; the next instalment of his project ‘V.L.D.T’.

LondonStreet Clothing

LondonStreet Clothing is a street wear brand by Kabelo Bale, Sabelo Sithole and Mandla Nyoni, the three young designers have based their first collection on a minimalist approach. ‘We just dropped collection called “DOOMED YOUTH” it is a result of an observation. Through this observation we noticed that the youth lacks individuality and self-acceptance. They tend to do things that will enable them to “fit in” or be accepted by the “society”. It’s time the youth snaps out of “what they going to say” syndrome and begin to do what they really want to do and unlock their potential.’ The... Read more
