The Story of Klipa

African contemporary clothing brand, Klipa, focuses on the detailed craftsmanship, young-spirited street style, high quality urban design and easy-to-wear silhouettes. Created by experienced local designer, Carlo Gibson, the brand was launched in 2015. The concept was inspired by his desire to create a fashion brand that offers a recognisable identity to young contemporary South Africans. “At the time, I looked around and saw that as South Africans, we didn’t have our own unique fashion identity, but instead, all I saw was a mash-up of international Western fashion being worn on the streets. I became passionate about creating something that was fashionable and trendy, but also distinctively South African – and so Klipa began,” Carlo explains.
