The H&M’s much anticipated collaboration with South Africa’s Mantsho label is expected to launch on 15 August in all South African stores as well as at all H&M online markets that include exclusive flagship stores around the world.
Mantsho and H&M have an exciting collection which seeks to celebrate the elegance and vibrancy of Africa with modern edgy designs created for the stylish carefree woman.
The range features flowy, easy fitting cuts, frills and gathers in a range of colour palettes from blues, browns to blacks, hues of pink and amber reds.
A collection of Afrocentric fashionable accessories which include shoes, earrings and a clutch bag complete the versatile collection.
“This is my love letter to the world from Africa,” says Mantsho’s head of design, Palesa Mokubung. “I hope customers around the world will enjoy this ensemble of my stand out pieces from my last three collections.”
“Palesa’s creativity with colour, print and silhouettes is inspiring as she celebrates the female form through her designs which complement the female shape in a flattering and playful way. We are so excited to share this collection with our customers across the globe,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, Assortment Manager for Collaborations and Special Collections.
The Mantsho label, meaning ‘black is beautiful’ in Mokubung’s native Sesotho language, was established in 2004 and has since graced numerous runways including Greece, India, USA, Jamaica, Nigeria, Botswana and Senegal.
