Riky Rick’s Is Now The Most Stylish Performing Artist In SA

Published

on

Riky Rick, also now known as King Kotini, has certainly carved a unique space for himself within the South African Hip Hop space. In 2016, we’ve seen not only his visually captivating style transformation. From authentic, simple but hip street swag to some of the most dramatic fur coats we’ve seen in our red carpets.

But while that first happened with his sound, the rapper is now taking seriously his love for fashion. And now that the David Tlale underwear range ambassador has also scored himself an SA Style Award for Most Stylish Performing Artist In Music, his ascension to being a fashion icon is getting pretty serious.

His hit Sidlukotini is all about how he wants people to know how much not only he loves fashion, but fashion is a big part of his core artistic expression.

This past year, we’ve seen the Sondela hitmaker ruffle some feathers with fashion risks. One such famous moment was social media reaction to his outfit at the SAMA music awards, which saw him combining styles from different eras and subcultures.

In particular his shoes sparked raving debates.  The upperlife cleats are in fact Gucci princetown leather slippers exclusively customed designed for Riky Rick by John Born. They are also leather painted.

There was also the shorts.

But being a fashion would require one to break many of the rules that have come to define what’s acceptable. That’s why when asked about the criticisms, Riky Rick revealed that he’s really been losing no sleep.

“I’m not aware of anyone saying anything about me. I just keep it fresh all the time. I keep on top of things and on top of the case. I keep it simple all the time”, he said to TshisaLIVE. 

Most times though, Makhado is simply making headlines whenever he hits the red carpet, an act which he appears to take quite seriously.

His Instagram page has become a vibrant constellation of his playful, yet effective taste in clothes. Fans have become used to being treated to high quality snaps depicting the rapper giving his outfits a visual story.

And because Riky knows that his fans are appreciative of his fashion, he is rarely trotting without his photographer around. All the snaps here were captured by the talented photographer @Yeahlenzo, who is also making Nomuzi’s Instagram account pop.

Riky Rick won the 2016 SA Style Award for The Most Stylish Performing Artist in SA.

SA Fashion Week’s (SAFW) New Talent Search is days away to discovering our country’s most talented future fashion designer.  Established in 1998, this search is an opportunity to secure long-term growth for the designers who enter.

For over two decades, the SA Fashion Week New Talent Search has been revered as South Africa’s most prestigious fashion competition. 

Since its inception, it has launched the careers of many of our country’s most successful designers, some of whom include Black Coffee, David Tlale, MMUSOMAXWELL and more recent, Cindy Mfabe.

RELATED: GALLERY – SAFW 2019 DAY 1 RECAP

It’s a well-established fact that the most challenging period of a designer’s career is between 5-10 years of the growth of their brand. Faced with a diverse range of challenges, and in the face of a rapidly changing industry, this period is considered ‘make or break’.

The SA Fashion Week New Talent Search seeks to find those designers who have already succeeded in achieving certain criteria, the latter which includes locally-based womenswear businesses who supply a minimum of one store (their own, another or online) and have been in business for ten years or less.  Entering this competition provides both the winner, in addition to the finalists, an integral entry into sought-after contact and relationship-building opportunities with media, buyers and new clients.

RELATED: GALLERY – SAFW 2019 DAY 2 RECAP

Designers are selected, by a panel of industry-leaders, on their design talent, ability to follow the brief and their capacity to supply more stores in the future.  The prize is valued at over R60 000-00 and includes representation for a year by The Fashion Agent and the amazing opportunity to show at the SAFW SS21 Collections.

The brief for this year is Shaping the future of Sustainable Fashion.  Open to diverse interpretation, the sustainability of fashion’s future is a vital issue that needs addressing to ensure that the planet is protected for future generations.

Lucilla Booyzen, SAFW Founder and CEO, shared that “This is an incredibly exciting brief, providing a platform for creative curiosity and we encourage the entrants to consider all aspects of sustainability and what that means.” 

RELATED: GALLERY – SAFW DAY 3 RECAP 

She added “There’s no formal definition of sustainable fashion, and sustainability and ethics can apply to many different aspects of a fashion business.  Without doubt, sustainable fashion brands are the future of our industry.”

The brief, process and all entry details can be found on SAFW website.  Registration must take place online before 5pm on the 16 July 2019.  More info HERE

A design that originally paved the way for futuristic sneakers in the world of running now returns as a renewed street style staple.

When PUMA innovated the CELL technology, it was the most durable and resilient cushioning
technologies of the day. Launched in 1998, CELL Alien OG was structured for high mileage runs with the CELL bubble packed through the heel for extra cushioning.

When it first debuted, the silhouette was so revolutionary that even aliens were believed to have descended on earth to own a pair.

Today, over 20 years later, the sneakers have touched down with its original CELL cushioning technology, striking colour mix, and super-fresh design. The silhouette remains true to the original colourway for the first launch, with PUMA BLACK-SURF THE WEB-PUMA WHITE and LIME PUNCH on the cell bubble and breathable mesh upper with suede overlays and synthetic leather overlays sits atop an EVA midsole and rubber outsole.
