South Africa: the Japan of Africa?

I'm not one for fashion, I don't care what someone tells me everyone else is wearing. I loathe seeing drones and drones of girls wearing the same brand like they're all sponsored.

Case in Point.

That being said I've always appreciated the Japanese way. The quirkiness and almost ubiquitous individuality of the Japanese fashion sense is a breath of fresh air. Having seen a video article on the launch of 46664 the fashion line associated with Nelson Mandela, I've come to realise that South Africans in their outlandish no-holds-barred   expressions are the Japanese of Africa.  Appreciate it with me and if you don't agree let me know:

Although I'm not sure how I feel about the commercialisation of the prison number.
