Afro-Sapien: a Few More Shots

It’s hard to imagine life without the T-shirt. Since the 1960s, T-shirts have become a staple in the American wardrobe and a form of personal expression.

New fashion label Afro-Sapien makes it way into the streetwear scene paying homage to the significant achievements, contributions and successes made by individuals of African descent, as well as those of other nationalities who participated with and/or supported them along the way. Afro-Sapien reflects a state of mind and a sense of fashion.

Capturing the style and grace of select individuals including but not limited to African-American, Afro-Latino, Afro-Asian, as well as all other nationalities who appreciate and participate in an “Afro-influenced” culture—as well as the genres in which they created, the Miami-based company’s signature T-shirt collection embodies the Afro-influenced spirit with its simple design and thought-provoking quotes and statements.

Representing a global lifestyle, the collection appeals to men and women, teens, tweens and young adults. The company’s logo—a groovy African-American man and woman—are a throwback to the culture of the late 1960s and 1970s, a time when clothing styles and fabrics were inspired by non-Western culture—including Africa—and a time when everything from fashion to language to attitude was “far out” and hip, and afros were worn by both sexes.

Its provocative statements like tag lines “engage your mind” and “life, love and liberation,” are engaging people’s minds and starting conversation among the generations, across nationalities and across borders.
