Often, South African celebrities love flaunting their global luxury brands, and only turn to local designers in time of need: for that red carpet look. It is therefore quite refreshing seeing a celebrity supporting local design talent of their own accord, and wearing their clothing on an ordinary day like Bonnie Mbuli did in an image she posted on Instagram yesterday.
About the Look
A vintage-inspired, red wrap dress by Rich Mnisi, for the Woolworths Style by SA capsule collection
About the Designer
Did you just ask that? Rich Mnisi is only just about one of the best designers of his generation, often dropping gender bending collections that are both beautiful and covetable, but most importantly, very much wearable.
What's there to love
Wrap dresses, a Diane von Furstenberg invention dating back to 1973, are a classic, timeless addition to any woman's closet. Indeed every style conscious woman should have one. We love the bright red on this particular one, the flattering cut and the charming pleated wrap, and Bonnie wears it so beautifully with those black boots.
Get the look
The ideal thing about a wrap dress is that it requires minimal styling, yet it's so timelessly elegant, so go ahead and make that effortless style statement next time you step out for a drink with the girls, or a date with that lucky guy ;)
