Located on the coolest portion of Braamfontein’s bustling Juta street, street wear store RHTC, which exclusively retails locally produced and owned street wear brands, hosted Riky Rick’s Cotton Club Records merch pop-up this weekend.
The pop-up essentially brought the edge of the street to a standstill, with street wear and culture fans lining down the street to get their hands on Riky’s merch and a variety of other locally stocked brands.
Dubbing it ‘a record setting queue for local street wear brands in Africa’, store founder Frypan Mfula says they sold out all items in stock and they’re only re-opening their doors this Thursday due to clearing out over 400 items on the day.
RHTC X Playground is also working on the up-coming Lets Play Outside Festival; the biggest festival independently put together by more than a 100 street artists. The festival, to be held on 28th April, is dedicated to growing local entrepreneurship within youth culture by creating a space for 40 local brands to showcase and retail their products. In addition to 3 workshops and an exhibition centred on local youth culture, you can also expect 20 local artists on stage.
