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

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
