SABC1’s Loxion Kulca doccie is a winner

SABC1’s 20 Years of Loxion Kulca opens with majestic shots of Joburg. Local golden-era beats by H20 and Pro play in the background. This immaculately compiled presentation takes us back to 1999 and the emergence of a streetwear brand that would give an identity to the creative wave sweeping through the streets.

Neo Rathebe is a first-time director and it is remarkable what he’s been able to do. His clever use of archive footage shows how Loxion Kulca has touched so many veins of creativity – from being worn by presenters on one of the best game shows this country has seen, Jam Alley, to forming part of the wardrobe for thugged-out characters in brilliant dramas like Yizo Yizo..

Viewers get interesting titbits about the brand’s creation, such as the fact that they didn’t make it into SA Fashion Week the first time they tried to enter … imagine. This prompted the guys to get their own ramps and take fashion to the hood, which, in the grand scheme of things, was probably a better move. [ ]
