On the Street….The Smarties, Soweto, SA

 

About a year ago I was talking about my travel wishlist  with my good friend Sam Lambert. I had mentioned visiting Africa and immediately Sam told me I had to meet this group of young men in Soweto that called themselves The Smarties.

 

Sam was right; these young men love fashion, design their own looks, and even sew the clothes themselves. Their look is a mix of their personal experiences and their dreams.

 

Kabelo, the young man pictured above, found this suit at a second-hand shop and and had it altered to his exact desires. He is very soft-spoken and sincere, it was quite touching when he told me that Lino is his hero and that he wore his “Italian flag” hat on that specific  day to honor Luca Rubinacci’s birthday.

 

We’ll see more of The Smarties this week.

On the Scene….The Neighbourgoods Market, Downtown Johannesburg, SA

The good thing about having a small artistic community is that everyone can hang out together. That’s what it felt like at The Neighbourgoods Market, a Saturday-only pop-up market/clubhouse in the center of downtown Johannesburg. Sam and I were very impressed by how natural, cool and laid back the vibe was at the market. The food booths were incredible and the little clothing shops were perfect for local artists and designers to showcase their goods to the right crowd. We would’ve been happy to hang out there all day.
