2Bop

 

2BOP STARTED IN 2004 AS A WAY TO TURN A PASSION FOR CLASSIC VIDEO GAMES INTO A FORM OF EXPRESSION.

 

2Bop draws inspiration primarily from games that were popular in South Africa at corner shops and arcades in the 1980’s and early 1990’s when game play was crucial and graphics if they were good were an added bonus. Disadvantaged areas during apartheid South Africa had little exposure to cutting edge international design or computer technology, but the bootleg arcade games that used twenty cent pieces (a 2Bop) to play at the corner shop were a window into what was happening in the outside world.

These games granted access to excellent electronic entertainment and exposed the 2Bop crew to intuitive and engaging interface design, game design, graphic and sound design primarily from Japan and North America. And so began a long fascination with the medium that shows no signs of stopping.

From the iconic arcade games to VHS prints and basketball silhouettes, 2Bop collections use a variety of fabrics ranging from pastel organic hemp and organic cotton used in some of the headwear, to some synthetic fabrics and digital prints, evoking a certain nostalgia through every piece.
