H&M’s much anticipated collaboration with South Africa’s Mantsho 
label launches on the 15th of August 2019 in all South  African stores, all H&M online markets as well as exclusive flagship stores around the world. Mantsho x H&M is an exciting collection celebrating 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.  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.
