Poete Clothing – Wear Your Music
Proudly South African, Poete Clothing was founded in 2009 by Pretoria local JW Goosen. His passion for music and design naturally translated into that of an independent fashion label.
“The word poete is French for poet and this describes the muse of our designs perfectly. We want to reach out to people, artists and laymen alike. That first step is usually a warm greeting but in this case just a quote “learn who you are and be such”, he says. “Poete Clothing is inspired by the youth, culture and the music that our daily lives revolve around. With the strong belief that the ideas derived from daily lives are more a desire that a religion, we are intent on presenting a real and sincere concept and therefore the gist of our designs are usually beyond the graphics on our shirts”, Goosen continues.
Involving bands such as Van Coke Kartel, Yesterday’s Pupil, 7 Stukke Silwer and Oorlog Frankenstein Poete Clothing is a brand that focuses primarily on a unique, retro style for the creative individual and music lover.
With a very successful range of t-shirts currently in circulation the team is looking forward to the launch of the full Poete men’s range along with the Poete Belle woman’s range in early 2011.
