Alexander Wang debuted his latest collection at New York Fashion Week last year. The SS17 ready-to-wear collection was well received (no shocker there), and its success has sky-rocketed since. The campaign featuring the collection has now created waves on local territory due to the star of the campaign. No, it is not a local supermodel nor is it a show-stopping actor: it’s the infamous Ninja from the rap-rave group Die Antwoord.
Yes, you read correctly. We could hardly believe our eyes when we first saw it. It’s fashion genius and we’re completely obsessed!
Take a look:
In order to stand out from the crowd, you have to make a bold statement – and Ninja is no stranger to that kind of territory (the kind that most of us try to avoid). Wang is also no stranger to entering daring territory either, or to being able to make a success of it. Wang and Ninja are a match made in fashion heaven. Die Antwoord is now part of the #WangSquad, and we couldn’t be prouder. #Squadgoals #ProudlySouthAfrican
The biggest question is, where is Yolandi Visser in all of this? What would Ninja be without his partner in crime? Yolandi may not be the one cosying up to Ninja – but a picture is worth a thousand words. #WANGOVER
Whether you love him or hate him, Ninja is taking the fashion world by storm – and for whatever reason it is amazing AF.
