Earlier this year at South African Menswear Week, designer Rich Mnisi reached back to Zulu past and then forth to Zulu future and found elements to bring us some kinda genderqueer Zulu present in the form of Zulu Lounge, his Autumn/Winter 2016 collection. The models walked out in shoes by Maria McCloy. We went nuts for it! So moved was Sandiso by the looks he immediately attached each look to a Queen Rih song title. That post is still worth a read, peep it here. The collection made us feel like we could shine like diamonds as we kicked down the boss’s door and demanded, “Bitch betta my money!”.

Now Rich has enriched that collection by blessing us with a lookbook that also includes womenswear. Stop reading, scroll down below, or click on an image to view as a slideshow. Stay blessed!
