I Told My Therapist about You | Nokana Mojapelo’s Streetwear Collection ‘Booty Call’

Streetwear designer Nokana Mojapelo‘s D.O.C.C seasonal concept range is bold, unconventional and inspired by the aftermath of a relationship. Titled ‘Booty Call’, the collection was conceptualised around the idea of a mixtape. Nokana says, “I always felt like I wanted people to relate to fashion like they do lyrics. I wanted people to be attached and be able to reflect back on a time period in their lives, using my collections like anyone does when hearing an old song and immediately they reminisce.”

The graphic lookbook, shot by photographer and art director Anthony Bila, includes an intro and various ensembles labelled ‘27.3.15’, ‘Dear Diary’, ‘I told my therapist about you’, and so on, each accompanied by a short explanation. ‘Booty call’ is the reality of fickle young love, music one plays during a sour realisation and the feelings that go with it.

Dear Diary 'Just like a personal diary that experiences ones most subconscious thoughts, the 'dear diary' piece makes use of clothing as its canvas of expression to replace the diary.'

I told my therapist about you 'I'd like to think everybody can identify with a period in their life when things aren't falling into place. I have a personal theory that believes we are our own Gods because we solve our own problems and tame our own conscious. My conscious played the role of the therapist that established she was the core of thought that I entertained for too long that withdrew me from personal growth.'

18 SNVL ''18 SNVL' is a reminder of the intensity of the sexual relationship we had. Eventually we were reliant on it to keep things together. The sad beauty of it all is that we both knew that none of this was okay but we were blinded by emotional attachment.'
