Sandton City #LovesLocal with Joseph Tumahole and Thato of AEC WANG.

Sportswear-meets-street, proudly made in SA, the his-and-her drop-crotch tracksuits, designed by Joseph and Thato (behind AEC WANG) came to fruition at the start of the pandemic. “In black & brown, with a brown face mask, we felt the colours were dull and gave them a fresher look, in black & pink. This colour combination worked and couples loved them. And made with convenience in mind, the face mask is attached to the detachable hoodie, which means when outside, you can remove it.”
