Spy News Magazine fell in love with RICH MNISI, a South African based contemporary fashion brand.
Rich Mnisi, Africa Fashion International Young Designer of the Year 2014, launched the brand in 2014 after his graduation from Fashion Design School & Retail Education in Johannesburg, South Africa.
With a global view catering for an aspirational market, the brand is young at heart and explores the treasures engraved within Africa and the world of modern culture and heritage;to tell the unique stories ofthen, now and soon.The A/W 16 collection is inspired by one of the most celebrated and notable tribes in South Africa, the Zulu Tribe.
Known for their strong aesthetic, the Zulu tribe is also very ornate in their traditional apparel –a very autonomous approach to colour usage, proportion and texture.
It’s an acknowledgement and celebration of a modern African self. The brand collaborated with Maria McCloy on the men’s shoes and Navarre & Marchand on the bags.
