OkayAfrica's 'AFRICAN AF' SS17 Collection Is Here

AFRICAN AF, OkayAfrica’s debut homegrown collection for SS17, is here. Check out all the new designs!

AFRICAN AF is OkayAfrica’s debut homegrown collection for SS17.


While we've released a lot of collaborative clothing over the years, this is the first line that we've fully dreamed up and designed in-house.

AFRICAN AF is the ultimate statement collection that our audiences have been asking for.

Some designs were inspired by popular references—check out the Naija No Dey Carry Last tee and I Don't Speak African tote—and others by the local scoop from our global community.

All in all, though, SS17 was created out of one inherent desire: to proudly show where we're from and what we love.

Check out all the new designs below and shop the collection over at our OkayAfrica store. All photography by Dex R. Jones.

These products are Standard Issue, made of premium cotton, and coming to you straight from Brooklyn, NY, USA.
