Kina Klothing: African To A Tee



.
Written By: Nani Hapa—Every now and then, I "discover" (I use the term loosely here) something that is so out of this world cool, that all I can say is: DOPE (sorry mama, sometimes a little bit of slang goes a long way in capturing an emotion). That's how I felt when I saw Kina Klothing's t-shirts (www.kinaklothing.com). Kina Klothing is all about "Pan Afrikan, Art, Bongo Flava, Afro Beat, Taarab, Fashion, Poetry, Sankofa, Jazz, Pop-Culture, Fela Kuti , 60s, 70s, 80s Afrika, HipHop, Illustration, Cassette Tapes, Street, Soul, Vinyl Records, Politics, Animation, Disco, Electronic, Basketball, Fun, Zouk, Bolingo, Photography, Soccer, Play, CDs, mp3s, Graphic Design … everyday people." My personal favorite t-shirt is this one featuring Julius Nyerere; not only would I rock this t-shirt in a heartbeat (I can see myself in this t-shirt, a pair of faded jeans and my curls on the loose at a house party dancing to Congolese music), I would probably fall head over heels in love at first sight with any guy who would is aware enough to wear the Nyerere t-shirt:

Nani, to me, you are the voice of Mimi. Now that you're writing for the blog I am checking every day to see what you have to say. Mama you had me rolling on the floor laughing with your "head over heels in love at first sight" description. You are SO crazy.

Nice. I must say that I like both shirts, they are unique designs that I have never seen before. Good to see designers from other African countires stepping up to the plate and doing something that reflects their unique histories.
