D.O.C.C

The Booty Call collection by D.O.C.C is post-break-up fashion at its best, and never has a South African designer created such an emotionally-motivated collection. The collection was released as an album, and each garment was accompanied by an artwork. This novel approach to fashion resulted in the world’s first break-up-themed, fashion-music compilation in the form of the Booty Call EP. Each garment is a remnant of the relationship manifested onto printed T-shirts, text and graphic golf shirts, pastel shorts and a two-piece canvas trench coat and trouser combination. A firm favorite with the younger generation, D.O.C.C is definitely one to watch.

DEAD

DEAD by Bangy is an exciting lifestyle brand that embodies the hyper-emotional millennial generation. Coming out of Pretoria, DEAD provides well-fitted garments with a variation on Chinese workwear silhouettes, fused with bright colors, patch work and eccentric prints that add texture to a more traditional style. The recent “Come back around” collection is the best example of the two worlds merging with effortless ease.

3AM

3AM is a brand that’s for the youth, by the youth. Self-proclaimed “king of the kids” Didi Monsta draws inspiration from his life experiences to create strangely appealing capsule collections that sell out within a matter of days. What’s more, he doesn’t even use a website — he just sells his stuff straight off Instagram. 3AM will often combine unlikely fabrics and ideals, resulting in a range of clothing that has a surprisingly clear identity. The brand utilizes bright pink camo on a collared shirt, for example—one with a Velcro strip instead of buttons, no less—and makes use of camo and 3M reflector strips to instill a sense of confusion. Apparent contradictions are the name of the game for 3AM, and it works.
