Material Culture X DMD Linea Italiana make history

Material Culture X DMD Linea Italiana make history

In an epic depiction of the DMD Linea Italiana ethos in a photo and video shoot in Johannesburg recently, the skhothane group Material Culture and DMD Linea Italia made creative magic.

Brandon Barnard, tasked with the direction and photography captured this unmistakable essence. Tshepo Pitso the leader of Material Culture fondly known as Don Dada, highlighted their passion for vibrant and outrageous clothing.

This group is so passionate about the movement and what they stand for, a group member Bafana Sithole a.k.a. Gento Bareto wrote and produced the soundtrack Shubirisha. This video is a must-see, the music, movement and clothing are a perfect match.

The legacy of DMD Linea Italiana Muracchini, born some 43 years ago and the brainchild of Franco and Mirella Paolucci, fondly known as Magogo, proudly lives on.

Material Culture taking Magogo Classics and DMD Linea Italian to another level! In Magogos’ words; “The DMD Linea Italiana customer is special, with a unique taste, he likes to wear fabrics that make him stand out and be noticed - the louder, the brighter, the better. Thank you for supporting me all these years, you are my true heroes.”

DMD Linea Italia X Material Culture photo and video shoot

In a recent photo-shoot in Johannesburg, we asked the Material Culture what it meant to dress in the vibrant and outrageous outfits they are so famous for wearing. It was refreshing to note that it was largely due to the Brand raising their self-esteem and that DMD resonated with their culture being uniquely African and rooted in Gauteng, the city of gold, hence the gold necklaces and teeth acentors.

Tshepo Pitso fondly known as Don Dada to his followers insists on clean living and not bringing their movement into disrepute. There is a subculture that is sensationalist and in order to gain notoriety burns money, footwear and clothing and even wastes food and drink, this sadly has been depicted by some media and musicians as the norm. You will be pleasantly surprised when reading about the different characters. They originate from various townships around Gauteng, live a simple life, they love to dress up and perform, their aim is to be good role models for the youth and just love to showing their ‘vibes’.

Tshepo Pitso a.k.a. Don Dada

DMD, what does it mean to you?

DMD clothes make me feel unique especially because I’m from the township and when I go to the suburbs I’m the talk of town and everyone wants to see what my outfit is about.

  • DMD matches my colourful shoe collection
  • The designs have so many colours and prints to choose from that I don’t run out of ideas when dressing up
  • It’s not a brand for everyone; you need to have that “IT” factor and confidence to wear it
  • I like the fact that the designs use a lot of African prints that keep it close to my culture

What is your favourite quote that makes you “Don Dada”?

“Living the skothane life always”

What fashion tips would you give?

DMD is an everyday style you can wear; people must stop being afraid of the magical colours.

First find yourself and then match your style to who you are. Make your style your own and take ownership of your look. It’s a lifestyle if you live it the right way; like telling people you look expensive as if you’re a walking collector’s item.

DMD, what does it mean to you?

It symbolises the influences of our culture and what I am about.

  • It’s the go too brand for skhothane’s
  • When wearing DMD it shows that you’re from the township and that you are style conscious
  • It represents the neatness and tidiness of an individual

  • This style show’s people that you are unique and different to others i.e. flowers are not seen as masculine; but DMD managed to make these different patterns not seen as feminine
  • The clothes that we wear represent a unique ‘you’ and how you choose to put certain items together adds to your flair
  • Certain colour combinations represent a different you or emotions (how you are on the inside) even if you don’t notice it. i.e. red = very emotional | blue = subtle or cool | purple = moderate | mixed colours = a mixture of everything


What quote makes you Sisto?

Dress up and show up

 What fashion tips would you give?

Taste and style is different from person to person. I say look at what the person is already wearing as that already represents what that person is about OR where they are in their fashion journey. Match the outfit to that person’s character so that they are comfortable and feel good about themselves.
