World-renowned SA designer Rich Mnisi's debut collection with Adidas drops next week and the fashion streets are a mess.

Mnisi is used to making waves with high fashion (and pricey) threads — remember that R60k xibelani skirt

Adidas unveiled the highly-anticipated collab with Mnisi on Thursday, giving fans a glimpse into the collection.

The collab is filled with bright and bold pieces inspired by Mnisi's Tsonga culture and include everything from a headscarf to shoes.

“Pieces in the collection fuse bright, bold animal prints, vibrant clashing colours and striking abstract patterns that come together to tell the exciting story of his roots. Each piece has been designed to be worn as a standout piece or accessorised and layered for a more individual and expressive look,” Adidas said of the collection.

Parts of the collection have also been made with recycled materials and Parley Ocean Plastic, to help end plastic waste

Speaking of the collab, Mnisi said the aim was to “create pieces that support life on and off the sports field”.

“The spirit of this collection celebrates our homeland, so environment was an important aspect when looking at methods and materials used in the creation process. I am so pleased we’ve used Adidas’ advanced technology and partly-recycled materials.

“I am truly excited for the world to see this collaboration come to life.”

Clothing in the collection ranges from R379 to R3,599 for a pair of custom kicks.

Here's a look at four items from the collab and what they will cost you:
