Artist and Barber collaboration on Bros With Fros [Submitted]

by Andy on July 1, 2013



Bros With Fros is a recently launched collaboration between North London barber Mark Maciver aka Slider and his wife, artist Lakwena Maciver. Seeking to explore, document and celebrate the rich heritage of Afro Caribbean men’s hairstyling, Bros With Fros takes iconic men’s hairstyles as a starting point, with a series of printed textiles highlighting their beauty as a sculptural art form.

Products currently include printed T-Shirts, sweaters and canvas bags. Working in partnership, Mark’s haircuts are illustrated by Lakwena, meticulously screened by Mark for any technical inaccuracies, then screen-printed by hand by Lakwena locally at Hackney’s Print Club London. Finally, products are sold directly from D&L’s Barbershop, at local market stalls and at festivals as well as from the Bros With Fros website online at www.broswithfros.com.

Andy: There is almost literally a clothing company for every subject.
