Zulu

hint of bead­ing. Mnisi makes sub­tle use of Zulu in­spi­ra­tion in his lines rather than his colour or tex­ture. The col­lec­tion’s prints con­sist of ty­pog­ra­phy and the rep­e­ti­tion of or­ganic shapes. With high-waisted pants, Re­nais­sance-style puff-sleeved shirts and fit­ted polo-neck jer­seys, the col­lec­tion’s pieces work on men and women, and we love how the more fem­i­nine items have been put on male mod­els. An­drog­yny is mak­ing a fash­ion­able come­back, with celebs like Jaden Smith don­ning skirts and “women’s wear” in var­i­ous spreads. This might be a re­flec­tion of men shed­ding gen­der con­form­ity, or just a pass­ing trend. We live in hope.
