NAKED APESouth Africa
Shaldon Kopman founded the brand Naked Ape in 2005. Naked Ape’s journey has been a true African Odyssey with Shaldon Kopman at the helm steering the course of an envisioned atelier. Like all artists, Shaldon explores the quintessence of his subject, deconstructs it and reimagines it with his imitable style. Naked Ape’s latest offering is a departure from its bespoke origin, however, lending its signature of detailed craftsmanship enjoyed by its couture clients to a ready-to-wear range.
The Street Rover range is inspired by the indomitable nature of the industrious urban salvors, who emerge from the pre-dawn darkness into the day, irrespective of the season’s onslaught, suitably attired for the conditions to harvest, recycle and repurpose our disposed personal effects.
