Okayafrica's collaboration with Daniel Ting Chong draws inspiration from African national flags to create a singular African identity.
Today, we’re excited to launch our collaboration with renowned South African artist and designer Daniel Ting Chong. A series of multicoloured graphics on t-shirts, a crew neck sweater, a headscarf and a tote bag, the collection draws its inspiration from various African national flags to create a singular African identity.
“National flags are often used as a beacon of hope, and a symbol of what a country stands for. A flag as a visual representation of its people–and to distinguish it from other nations. By having the same flag, Africa can have a common symbol to bring us closer together–at home or abroad,” says Daniel.
The collection is available exclusively at Okayafrica's pop-up space at 70 Juta Street in Braamfontein, Johannesburg between the 29th of September and the 8th of October.
Our lookbook was shot by South African filmmaker and photographer Lenzo.
