Rich Mnisi Debuts New Collections Titled “Tank”

Rich Mnisi did not come to play this season with his latest collection titled ‘Tank’ that he premiered at the FW 2023/24 Paris Fashion Week. Rich Mnisi is known for the way he explores the boundaries of gender, art, and sexuality while still honouring its South African roots. In his latest collection ‘Tank’ he did exactly that bearing garments that are all about the fluidity of fashion that is thought-provoking and don’t label gender or who is supposed to wear what.

When we were kids, we didn’t know much.
But that’s exactly how it should be, right?
We were learning, observing and absorbing everything we saw, heard and touched.
Little tanks, filling bit by bit, holding more than we knew we could. That’s where the Tank collection comes from. The tank of muddy questions and bright ideas, of wonder and awe, of good things and bad things, that every young mind becomes. Filled to the brim with inspired curiosity, and fuelled by the psychedelic power of imagination.

His collection included a classy, sassy and sexy look that caters for all genders with vibrant hues that are paired with complimentary textures and materials to produce an aesthetic that is all his own. His collection stayed away from the contemporary norm that African have accustomed to, blending different textiles that somehow blend together, he had small mini skirts, long hug-fitting dresses, crop tops that had long flawless caps, crochet lace shirts, backless suits and coats that had the name Rich Mnisi branded on them.

We’re not kids anymore, and in some ways, it’s a monumental loss. In others, it’s not. Because now, we can be who those kids needed. We have what we need to catch up and tell those early magical stories, to explore what we didn’t have language for. This collection is for the echoes of those children that we carry with us now, finally handing them a stage and a megaphone for all we left unsaid. Because when we were kids we didn’t know much, but what we did know, what we filled our tanks with, was wonderful.
