The instrumental from DJ Lag’s new track “Jungle” soundtracks the film for Rich Mnisi’s sublime Hiya Kaya SS21 collection which was also shown as part of the recent Vogue Talents digital event.
In a potent celebration of the impact of South African creative talent globally, DJ Lag’s “Jungle” plays an integral part in Mnisi’s timeless celebration of the majestic VaTsonga female form.
“The Hiya Kaya SS21 collection is truly a testament to her beauty, power, resilience, and fortitude,” says RICH MNISI. “Her essence has finally been brought to the light, for the world to marvel and draw inspiration. We are honoured to have been entrusted to tell her story through wearable art.”
The celebration of the VaTsonga tribe and its rich cultural heritage was shot in Louis Trichardt (Limpopo), Hole In the Wall (Eastern Cape) and Llandudno (Western Cape). The Hiya Kaya SS21 collection was presented at Vogue Talents first digital event which took place on September 22nd at Milan Fashion Week.
The RICH MNISI brand and Nigerian based label Emmy Kasbit have been selected as the two winners of the 2020 edition of “Scouting for Africa” – an initiative of Vogue Talents, in collaboration with African Fashion Foundation (AFF) with the support of the IFFAC.
DJ Lag’s “Jungle” will be released on October 16th on all streaming platforms.
