Yes, there is a fashion line lovingly created in Nelson Mandela’s honor. The brand is named after the lauded political figure’s prisoner number on Robben Island, 466/64, and is now available on an e-commerce website. It launched in South Africa in 2011 and debuted in North America on Mandela’s birthday, July 18, 2012. The latest collection is comprised of vibrant-hued pants, swingy printed dresses, gingham button-down shirts, and more. While the design philosophy is appealing enough, what’s most endearing about the collection is its commitment to Mandela’s legacy and South Africa as a whole. Sixty percent of the line is manufactured in South Africa, and approximately 9 percent of its sales are given to the 466/64 Foundation.
