Kabelo Kungwane x Wanda Lephoto at the Castle Light event

People are often surprised by how young and how well we are able to dress the way we dress. We are often looked down upon, called names and even laughed at by people we guy even went as far as spitting at our shoes, had I not been wearing a tie that day, lets just say that would have been the last time something came out of his

But as much as I can say people don't understand what we do and hate us, those are only the minority something like 1 in 1000 who actually dislike us, the rest which would be 999 encourage, support and give us love that we could never give back as much but we could only show appreciation and continue doing what we do best...redefining our lives through style.

The castle lite event which was held in Braamfontein was one of those days where we experienced it all.

It's all love to all those that love us, and even more love to those that don't....yet. :)

Kabelo and Wanda x Madala(Old Man) Mahlomula

Forgotten Face is a story Kabelo and I would like to tell of South African forgotten faces, un-heard voices and unfulfilled dreams. We worked on a tie range which the old man in the picture above was the 1st to wear, his story is an inspiring story which we would like to tell in the near future. This is a collaboration of a few artists and sartists Kabelo and I

Art has been made a science where definitions with no emotion breathes nothingness to this work of art we love. We are trying to bring back emotion.

We are bringing back life.

Kabelo Kungwane in Shanghai x Street Sartorial x The Sartorialist

Another small contribution to the world as Kabelo Kungwane makes his debut feature on the Modern Weekly, a Hong Kong based and run magazine. It is always inspiring when friends who work hard have their work pay off. The article features fellow South African brand Two Bop and other African warriors making their marks on the international scene such as Adrian Sauvage , Louis Phillip as well as London based team Art Comes First.

In the famous words of Mos Def and Talib Kweli ....'what is a Black Star?'...To me these warriors are black stars and even though we cant make out the words written on this article we know that these guys are making Africa proud.
