Introducing The John Craig Look #4 – “The Nkunzi”
“Nkunzi”, a Zulu word meaning “The Bull”, is the inspiration for our John Craig Look #4 – the “Nkunzi.” The bull has been an important symbol for many ancient cultures with its commanding presence and masculinity. The bull symbol represents solar energies, determination, power and, of course, virility. The bull, as both a solar and lunar sign, has leant its name to one of the oldest constellations, Taurus – often recognised as a season of prosperity. To Native American cultures, the bull signifies resourcefulness and is regarded as an omen of stability, safety and durability.
Here in Mzansi, the name Nkunzi is synonymous with Masoja Msiza’s brilliant portrayal of Nkunzebomvu “Nkunzi” Mhlongo. Msiza debuted in the third season of SABC 1, Soap Opera Uzalo, playing a leading role. It didn’t take him much time to win the viewers’ hearts with his outstanding performances – even though the character sometimes leaves the audience with mixed feelings.
No matter what the portrayal, Nkunzi embodies power, strength, success and determination. The Collection from John Craig brings these virtues to the fore, take a look at this carefully curated outfit for the man who will let nothing stand in the way of him or his success. This look is all about having a presence that is no-nonsense, in control and a leader.
