One of our favs in the Mzansi streetwear scene is obvs the Young and Lazy Anees Petersen (he young, too, but lazy, not so much). So, when we heard he was styling the new Happy Socks lookbook, we were excited to see what he and those involved (Brad Abrahams, Miss Duce and Nico Krijno) would do with the Swedish brand. Founded with the intention to “turn an everyday accessory into a designed, colourful item that also spreads happiness”, we of course expected a Happy Socks vibe that is all kinds of fun, creative and I know authentic is over-fucking-used, but what to say? Anyway, some of our Capetonian favs are all up in this, so dig it, and maybe tweet us @That_Skattie), hashtag #HappySkattie, give us the best description you can think of to describe this lookbook, and 31 pairs of fresh Happy Socks can be yours! No jokes! Have a look, get tweeting for happy! There’ll only be ONE winner, so get those creative juices flowing!
