On a Durban visit, a mad stylish homie put me onto Sophisticated Monkey Brand(SMB), an exciting design collective with dope streetwear based in the urban culture hub of 8 Morrison Street.
I was undeniably attracted to their customised denim jackets with iconic illustrations, so I ordered me some. Started my journey to sheer exclusivity by choosing Missy Elliot and Lauryn Hill artwork.
Once that was done, vintage denim jackets, badges and print fabric swatches were sourced for me. After many reverts, I finally received my goods. Really appreciate having been involved in every step of the process. Excited to see how they’ll continue to build on their unique brand.
Keep up with SMB on Instagram
