Editorial by Zenande Mtati produced in AREA3 CPT’17

A relook on a misappropriate culture of Pantsula.

Born out of an urge where young black youth wanted to be expensive, this is a culture I was raised by being a black child in post apartheid South Africa.

The backdrop has elements that are mostly relatable in black homes.

The purpose of this concept is to diminish the stereotypes associated with this culture and also to inspire young black youth to use a platform like adidas Area3 to tell their own stories.

Art Direction and Set Design: Luxolo Witvoet / Zenande Mtati

Styling: Sinazo Diko
