Award winning local fashion brand Rubicon showcased their latest classic collection Myth of Origin at South African Fashion Week 2020. The theme of the Rubicon X 2020 Collection is Myth of Origin, a celebration of the return to self. Paying homage to Hangwani Nengovhela’s colourful upbringing in Venda.
She channels the history of the cultural heritage site, Mapungubwe. She references the ancient landscape, the rich animal kingdom and the celebration of all things that explain her origins. Celebrating South African glamour, the latest Rubicon collection was designed to bring healing, joy, and vibrancy to the fashion scene during these troubled times.
“Like most young ladies, my mother was my number one fashion and style influence,” said Nengovhela, “With this collection, I’m paying homage to her for her endless inspiration. She brought glamour and class to our household even while doing the most mundane activities like carrying me on her back. I’m honoring her in a number of ways, including a t-shirt which will depict that exact imagery.”
Rubicon’s new collection includes a range of ready to wear, designer garments plus a few couture pieces and a bridal look. In line with the Myth of Origin theme, Rubicon is using bright African geometric patterns, bold fuschia and purple tones, as well as pastels and green hues that will suit any skin-tone or body type.
