Shelflife x Dr Zulu 10 Year Anniversary Collab

Shelflife and Dr Zulu have joined forces to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary by releasing a full clothing range inspired by 80s/90s BMX.

Dr.Zulu aka DR.Z is an internationally established artist, designer and entrepreneur. With formal training in Industrial Design and a visual background in graffiti and street art, Dr. Z has collaborated with many major brands including Nike, Puma, New Balance and K-Swiss. For this release, Dr Zulu took inspiration from the late 80s & 90s – the golden era of BMX, to present a range that features various pieces made entirely in South Africa. 

“ I remember when I was about about 10 years old I got my first real BMX and I realized now it was actually a key moment in my childhood because it had many influences in my life. Also around that time movies like Rad came out and fueled the hype for BMX. It was super Bgrade kind of like Rocky on a BMX but moments from the film stuck with me. Looking back I was highly inspired by the graphics and branding of the era. To me some of the most iconic logos were BMX logos and I really wanted to present some of those iconic themes through this capsule. I wanted to bring back some of the nostalgia but in a current updated way. Maybe to have the best of both worlds...retro but still fresh and something brand new.”
