This past weekend at South Africa Fashion Week, House of Rubicon showed off their most recent collection while delving deeper into their rich heritage.
With its latest collection, Mapungubwe Militaire, Rubicon celebrated its 21st anniversary as a fashion institution and cultural cornerstone by drawing inspiration from the military’s crucial role in protecting the ancient Mapungubwe kingdom. The collection was a powerful tribute to the enduring spirit of South Africa.
Rubicon’s founder and head designer, Hangwani Nengovhela, introduced the Mapungubwe Militaire collection and said: “We’ve embraced the classic elegance of a monochromatic black and white colour scheme as a disrupter to the traditional army green. Our monochromatic colours symbolise the timeless allure of the military tradition and remind us of the indomitable spirit of the nation.”
The A/W ’24 collection also embodied the military’s unwavering truth and purity of purpose throughout history.
With functional pockets, double-breasted designs, structured silhouettes, combat wear and tactical accessories, the Mapungubwe Militaire line marries the ethereal and the practical.
