StyleH&M Is Celebrating Its First South African Collaboration
As a Mom, the Casting of an African American Ariel in 'The Little Mermaid' Is So Important to Me
Stephanie Hollifield/Facebook I had a discussion with a friend about how excited I was for my daughter to see the upcoming The Little Mermaid movie. I told her I that was I was so proud that my daughter might be able to see herself in Ariel, a beautiful black princess. My friend didn’t understand the big deal. She “doesn’t see color.” She thinks that it doesn’t matter what race or ethnicity characters are, because we are all the same. I have learned a lot in the past few years. I have learned why it matters that our kids see diversity through their media. I hope I explained it well and that she heard my heart.
It’s no secret that H&M loves a collab. From Moschino to Kenzo, the large retailer has managed to create with some of the most luxe brands however, nothing has come from South Africa.
Well, that’s all about to change as H&M just announced their first-ever collaboration with South African brand, Mantsho. The new collection will feature edgy African-inspired prints celebrating the elegance and vibrancy of Africa. Pieces include flowy, easy fitting cuts, frills, and gathers in a range of colors from blues, browns to blacks, hues of pink, and amber reds. There are also Afrocentric accessories that include shoes, earrings, and clutches.

“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.”
The Mantsho label, meaning “black is beautiful” in Mokubung’s native Sesotho language, was established in 2004 and has since graced runways in the U.S., Greece, India, Jamaica, Nigeria, Botswana, and Senegal.
The collection will be available in the select U.S stores around the country, and online at hm.com beginning August 15th.
