WESLEY BALNIKKER from Black Bananas answers our few questions.
Black Bananas is a clothing brand that started with the online sale of exclusive streetwear in 2011. After the release of the first collection the clothing were seen in different places.
The recognizable ‘transformer monkey’ was noticed by several Dutch celebrities that’s when the brand from zero to hero real quick. Meanwhile Black Bananas has a various choice out of snapbacks, beanies tees, sweaters, and bombers. Also different accessories are offered.
Black Bananas releases multiple exclusive collections a year. In addition to the webshop, Black Bananas has an own Flagship store in The Hague.
When i started the brand i was thinking about a cool and edgy name for my brand. I made a lot of logo’s with different kinds of fruit pieces. When i made the Banana i was thinking about a cool name to match the logo. When Black Bananas popped up i knew that is was a catchy name that people will remember.
My vision for my brand is to make catchy designs for a good price. We make clothing that looks very expensive but for a good price. Our customers are young adults that love fashion and looking for something special. Also we make all our items in a small stock so al our items are very exclusive. We did Black Bananas parties in different clubs in the Netherlands and in Belgium. We also sell our accessoires at festivals. We support a lot of artists. A small list of artist we support are: Dimello, Childsplay, Blasterjaxx, Glowinthedark, Jorgen Rayman, Ben Saunders, B-Brave and Dj Dyna.
