How It Started

DVSN was created in 2020 by brothers Chris and Mike Walton in their search to find a pair of shorts that struck a balance between comfort and performance; versatile enough to be worn as leisure shorts, board shorts or training shorts.

The brand’s functional approach is rooted in their affinity for the sport of CrossFit and high performance lifestyles. The vision was to create a clothing label that you can enjoy wearing anytime, anywhere without sacrificing comfort or range of motion.

The Purpose

The purpose of each piece is versatility; professional enough to be worn at work, hardworking enough to be worn in training and stylish enough to be worn for a night out. The aesthetic of the label is a collision course between sportswear and streetwear, creating a truly unique and premium look and feel.

Based out of Cape Town, the designs worn on the DVSN garments are inspired by multiple subcultures, from Tokyo to California, London to Sydney, each design carries with it artistic expression. At DVSN we are our own customers, we live the lifestyle we perpetuate; we are as authentic as it gets.

The Division

DVSN [ pronounced “division” ] is an ambiguous word, chosen to support the meaning behind the letters VS framed in the centre. An abbreviation of “versus”, VS represents the constant battle taking place in our own minds; make progress or make excuses.

DVSN represents a new beginning, a division, dividing time into what was before and what is to come – past vs future – complacency vs progress – in the end always you vs you.
