Today sees the launch of OKAPI’S collaboration with two of South Africa’s most prominent artists – famed knitwear designer MAXHOSA BY LADUMA and influential South African hip-hop artist RIKY RICK on its limited edition capsule collection.
The collaboration brings together fashion and the world of music, combining the refined craftsmanship of OKAPI’s signature designs whilst taking inspiration from RIKY RICK’s fashion-forward and artistic sensibility and the Xhosa inspired aesthetic of MAXHOSA BY LADUMA.
The collection features a range of cross body bags, pouches, and belts made out of ostrich leathers in shades of red, green, beige and black, all tanned by highly skilled local artisans in the Western Cape. Exotic skins have been selected for this collection to reflect the brand’s essence of meeting exceptionality and authenticity, with sustainability and little waste.
