The brand was founded on 2013 by Lucas Namuramba aka Lxcas in Olievenhoutbosch, situated in the Tshwane South. The inspiration for starting Currency Heist came from being exposed to art, history, design, youth global culture and merging them into a fashion discourse known as Currency Heist.
Currency Heist aims to provide high quality products that entwine the African street fashion with couture aesthetics seen in its ram iconography, which symbolizes that one can be strong and yet remain humble. For instance, a ram will courageously fight against its foes when prompted but will submit to slaughter when necessary, indicating that even the strong have to be humble.
This is reminiscent of how many Africans were removed from their homelands, enslaved, and still fought for their rights and freedom; enslaved Africans showed humility through their adaptation of different global cultures, which now have created an evolving African nation with more understanding on the world around them.
By virtue Currency Heist through the ram symbolism is made for an individual who upholds high standards for themselves. The individual thirsts for knowledge and continues to exercise their intellect so that it does not wither away. The individual constantly fuels their imagination and curiosity. The individual pursues excellence for the greater good of his tribe or community. Just as the ram’s horns grow stronger with every passing year of its life, so, too, must their mental capacity, hustle and community.
Our creative process is concept orientated, directed towards communicating our brand message and lifestyle through each collection. We currently have x2 collections on the www.currencyheist.com online store, which embody what the brand stands for. The brand has a collaboration launching 1st November 2019 with the renowned emcee and artist Blaklez, called Blak Currency.
