Broke Boys x Kent Andreasen for Vogue Italia: Interview

Broke Boys x Kent Andreasen for Vogue Italia: Interview

As many of us saw a couple of weeks ago, during the craziness of Paris fashion week and things in the EU really heating up for some of our local faves, Vogue Italia dropped a showcase out of nowhere that took us by surprise. They featured a collab piece with the Broke Boys and local photographer Kent Andreasen

The multidisciplinary Broke collective (made up of AndileBinoSindisoSlolo, and Mzwandile) has been hitting all the right spots lately including Boiler Room, The New Originals, their own Broke Klub House, and so much more. Kent's work is no stranger to international acclaim including Rimowa, Kitsune and Nike. (Kent also shot our Chappies campaign earlier this year.) It was truly beautiful to see both forces link up on a global stage and drop such powerful work!

The photographs and video are shot amazingly and it's such a fresh take on their lives. We had some major questions so we had to shoot them over to the Broke Boys and Kent to find out how this came about.

Read it below!

How did the feature with Vogue Italia come about?

In an IG post, Andile said the shoot took place over a year ago but it only dropped recently. Was it hard keeping it under wraps for so long?

How did the team ensure the Broke Boys’ unique style and approach to fashion were seen in the shoot?

Where in Cape Town did the shoot take place? Was there any significance to the places chosen for this Vogue feature?

Which were your favourite garments you got to style for the shoot?

If you had to choose one photographic hero, who would it be?

How does shooting on film change how you work?

Any future projects we should look out for?
