H&M has given fans a look at its designer collaboration with South African brand Mantsho, ahead of the collection's official release on August 15.


The tie-up -- the Swedish fashion giant's first-ever collaboration with an African label -- was initially announced in April, and is to debut online and in flagship stores in the US, Mexico, Chile, the UK, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Israel as well as South Africa from next week, with the range to feature a selection of "bold prints, creative cuts and confident styles" in a range of color palettes from blues, browns to blacks, hues of pink and amber reds.

Consisting of specific items such as colourful espadrilles, chunky earrings and a clutch bag, as well as an asymmetrical panelled dress and a tunic dress with a bow-sash at the collar, H&M x Mantsho line will retail for prices ranging from €9.99 for a bag to €99.99 for a linen dress.

Designer Palesa Mokubung is based in Johannesburg and launched her brand Mantsho --  which means "black is beautiful" in the Sesotho language -- in 2004.
