Implemented during the global pandemic, United by Dickies has become the new reality; That we’re all apart but still shaping the future together through action, work and creative expression. The campaign is about building communities inclusive of diverse individuals under one common language, which is inspiration. Dickies called on 2 South African makers who have worked and ignited a culturally driven passion within their discipline to participate. They are:
Bonolo Modise : An amazing jewellery designer with a minimalistic approach to her design, driven and inspired by African influences and her hometown Soweto.
King Lutendo : A Tshivenda rapper and illustrator telling you a story of a South African culture.
Each maker is tasked to create a cinematic campaign in their creative environments showcasing South African talent and their individual crafts. The purpose is to show two individuals of different lives and backgrounds merging into one true narrative.
