ART COMES FIRST SS19 "SURF AFRIKA"
As seen on GQ, WWD, Hypebeast and more, part of ACF's research and travels around Africa is based around discovering many growing subcultures. There was on thing most of the cities had in common and that was surf.
The latest collection takes inspiration from big growing surfing communities in Africa, in cities such as Dakar, Accra where a big part of the youth culture in love with the waves is eminent. Playing around the idea of vacation as a local habitant, soaking up inspiration from the environment while keeping a combined modern/vintage style.The silhouette of the collection revolves around 50's Americana with a mix match of core punk tailoring details. It includes key pieces such as varsity jackets, M48 parkas, bowling shirts & trench coats, all in mixed fabrications from satin, velvet to cotton.
