We have been following the journey of Tebogo Makgope and Minenhle Mela, founders of Refuse Clothing and winners of the 2022 Scouting Menswear competition, from their initial selection as finalists to their recent collaboration with local retailer Mr Price. We are thrilled to announce their latest venture, a limited-edition collection called uMsamo, which will be available in selected stores, online, and on the Mr Price app starting September 6, 2023.
“REFUSE was created for all the township boys who loved fashion and hustled toward the lifestyle they always wanted. Our clothing speaks to hip-hop influences in our streetwear but never forgot its African roots. The last seven years have been instrumental in us growing our brand and expanding and this Mr Price collab allows us the opportunity to bring our designs and story to an even bigger audience, without comprising on the fundamentals that make us Refuse.” – Tebogo Makgope, co-founder.
“We knew that REFUSE was the perfect brand to partner after their standout showing at SA Fashion Week in 2022. Their energy and passion are symbiotic with who we are at Mr Price and we can’t wait for our customers to tap into their explosive designs.” – Kevin Smit, Managing Director, Mr Price.
The limited-edition range will be available in 48 selected Mr Price stores, online at mrprice.com and on the Mr Price app from 6 September 2023.
