Angolan Male Model Glen Abrantes For BoxFresh x Josh Stika's New Collection

New Spring/Summer 14 collaboration by Boxfresh and Josh Stika features Angolan male model Glen Abrantes.

Founded in 1989 by Roger Wade, label Boxfresh is constantly being renewed, reinvented and adjusted in response the public's aspirations and new fashion trends. The British streetwear brand just released a new capsule collection in collaboration with London-based graffiti artist and illustrator Josh Stika. Like its title implies, their joint Fruit Cocktail S/S14 collection utilizes miniature fruit shapes amongst other design details. We love the different prints used to make these hoodies, crewneck t-shirts and sneakers unique. Angolan male model Glen Abrantes stars in the cool lookbook, giving it a vintage feel with his hi-top fade. Scroll through our gallery above to view the pictures and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #boxfresh.
