Being a huge fan of music, I always gravitate to apparel brands that are inspired by rock n’ roll and the like. Just a little over a year ago, you may remember me bringing up Nok Nok, a London-based denim brand that excels in hand-painted denim inspired by “vibrant subcultures mixed with the freedom, hippie vibe and nightlife from Ibiza, the Spanish island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea.” Of course this caught my attention, being a DJ myself and dreaming of making the notorious party capital of Ibiza a vacation destination some day. Angel NokoNoko is the designer behind the brand Nok Nok, and he and his sister Montse are both from Ibiza. Angel is actually an electronic music DJ himself! So, as you can see, I immediately felt like I could relate to this brand.

Nok Nok and the Summer of Love 2016

There’s obviously no question that rock n’ roll, art and fashion go together like cheese and crackers, and that pretty much describes my life (minus the cheese). so I am ALWAYS excited to discover fashion brands that understand the marrying of all three and pull it off with effortless style. Many go for it, but some just seem like complete naturals and live it to a T. Nok Nok is a denim/contemporary fashion brand out of London, inspired by “vibrant subcultures mixed with the freedom, hippie vibe and nightlife from Ibiza, the Spanish island in the middle of the Mediterranean sea.” Ibiza? You have my attention. Being an electronic music DJ, that word is music to my ears, as the party capital of the world that us dance music buffs dream of visiting one day.

Angel NokoNoko is the designer and face behind the brand Nok Nok, and he and his sister Montse are both from Ibiza. The endless energy of the Spanish city’s nightlife inspired the brand, after Angel graduated from Central Saint Martins and gained experience from various high-profile fashion jobs in Paris and even ran a high-end menswear brand. Montse used to model and dance, and moved to London after she studied fashion business in Barcelona. Even as a teen, Angel had a fashion bug, customizing jeans and other fabrics for himself and friends and parading around in his creations at nightclubs once night fell, and gaining a name for himself as someone who knew a thing or two about creating unique pieces. Oh, and get this…Angel is now also a DJ, rocking spots such as Ibiza itself, Tokyo and London, of course. He also runs the The Nok Nok Radio Show at London’s underground Dejavufm.
