Welcome to Naked Ape

Naked Ape, the scion of Shaldon Kopman, celebrates a 10 year reign as the formidable studio of bespoke Africa inspired men’s wear that dresses the quintessence of the African spirit. Naked Ape’s journey has been a true African Odyssey with Shaldon Kopman at the helm steering the course of an envisioned atelier.

Naked Ape’s latest offering is a departure from its bespoke origin, however, lending its signature of detailed craftsmanship enjoyed by its couture clients to a ready-to-wear range. The Street Rover range is inspired by the indomitable nature of the industrious urban salvors, who emerge from the pre-dawn darkness into the day, irrespective of the season’s onslaught, suitably attired for the conditions to harvest, recycle and repurpose our disposed personal effects.

This range goes beyond a look, and encapsulates the ethos of the salvor, in using recycled and sustainable materials developed using unique and environmentally friendly processes, as well as energy efficient methodologies to produce a “kind to nature” product which lovingly instils the African story in each piece. Each piece is an environmental hero, and an embodiment of the African warrior spirit seamlessly blending into the urban landscape.

The Street Rover range is a gift of love to anyone who has longed for a Naked Ape ensemble, and day-to-day wear for its legion of bespoke clients.

Looking good no longer has to cost the earth.

Made with Love & Respect
