Petite Noir x Gold Coast Trading Co. x Drone Society

Petite Noir and Gold Coast Trading Company teamed up to release a fashion capsule collection entitled Gold Drones.

Gold Coast Trading Co. teams up with Petite Noir and his Drone Society collective to deliver Gold Drones, a capsule collection "dedicated to the Soweto youth uprising." The collaboration draws inspiration from South African history and uses symbolism to keep up on its "tradition of storytelling with adornments." We noticed the bucket hats right away, a straight up must-have item this season that we've seen appear in most Spring/Summer 14 collections. The collection also offers black-and-white t-shirts stamped with clean and cryptic graphic designs. For now, you can find these Gold Drones pieces in limited quantities at Golc Coast Trading Co.'s online shop and in select South African shops. Spot Petite Noir wearing the pieces at his next London show June 14 at James Lavelle's Meltdown Festival. Scroll through our gallery to view the photographs and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #golddrones
