Monokel Eyewear X GCTC Editorial
Gold Coast Trading Company (GCTC) is the brainchild of designer Emeka Alams. Seattle-based yet originally hailing from Nigeria, Emeka's designs borrow from the tradition of African storytelling and nostalgia for Africa's pre-colonial history and culture. Emeka has previously collaborated with artists such as M.I.A., Fela Kuti, Nas and Petite Noir and is currently working on a film project produced by Jillionaire of Major Lazer, documenting one of Africa's most influential music groups, Vision.
