The Nelson Mandela Foundation and KISUA Africa have re-launched the 466/64 clothing line in celebration of the Nelson Mandela Centenary.
The 466/64 fashion brand takes its name from the prison number of Comrade Mandela, the young, defiant revolutionary fighter whose actions fuelled a movement that changed South Africa forever. He was prisoner number 466 in the year 1964. 466/64 will have a new youth focused socially conscious brand direction that will honour the legacy of Madiba by providing financial support to his humanitarian efforts through the work of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital and the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
This 1st instalment is a combination of easy affordable casual T-shirts, hoodies and accessories like berets, military and baseball caps that celebrate different facets of Mandela’s life.
The collection also includes a limited edition ‘Mandela100′ capsule. These collectors’ items mark this once in a lifetime centenary celebration. The Freedom Range is another T-shirt capsule included in the collection that features the iconic silhouette of Nelson Mandela as he exited prison for the final time in 1990. We pay homage to this historic moment by celebrating Nelson Mandela’s values and character through clothing.
The collection is ‘Made in South Africa’ and available for purchase on kisua.com, the KISUA Sandton City store and selected retailers nationwide. Various 466/64 styles are also available in Cotton On stores nationwide.
Watch out for more collection releases in the coming months.
