Mantsho by Palesa Mokubung is a women’s clothing line based in South Africa. Its distinctive signature prints and textiles are hallmarks of the label’s bespoke garments that balance a confident African aesthetic with an international sensibility.
Palesa loves experimenting with earthy tones, does not shy away from using bold colours, and her original prints always take centre stage. This specific design ethos was prominent in her collaboration capsule with H&M in which she made history as the first African designer to collaborate with a global retailer.
Though easily inspired by her heritage and the ever-evolving modern culture, what defines her design decisions is her sensitivity to her instincts, allowing her to translate this gift into distinctive collections season after season.
