For Rich Mnisi’s SS‘18 collection showcased at ARISE, South Africa and Russia Fashion Week, Thalia Strates and the fashion brand bundled their power creating a strong, “gender fluid” collection. Thalia Strates, responsible for the handbags, brought in multiple belt bags with shearling and furry details and her classic Geneva and Mali bags, taking their shine reflecting African aesthetic.
Specially made for the show, the designers created two large statement bags in matching prints with the outfits.
“This collection has slight luxury vacation vibe – it’s a perfect example of how great South African design can be”, according to Spree.com’s fashion feed. Yahoo Lifestyle adds “He incorporated some of the season’s most covet-worthy accessories, like waist bags and sheer socks, along with colorful, oversized earrings and pins”, calling it “on point, fresh and very unique.”
