The Nelson Mandela Foundation has released a Nelson Mandela-inspired clothing line earlier this year as we reported, and the line titled 46664 has now come up with a new lookbook. The brand is envisioned as South Africa’s first global apparel brand. It pays homage to Nelson Mandela, the hero who fought for racial equality during the apartheid period.
The name “46664” represents a significant meaning: it was Mandela’s prison ID while he was incarcerated for treason and sentenced to hard labor at the Robben Island prison off the coast of Cape Town. The clothing line is also envisioned to provide a sustainable platform that would benefit clothing and textile manufacturing industries of South Africa.
Here’s a peek inside the 46664 line for men AND women. Are you in for some bright and gorgeous South African flavors?
