MaXhosa | Justina Blakeney
I’m enamored with the collections of South African knitwear designer Laduma Ngxokolo. His line, MaXhosa was designed as a knitwear solution to Xhosa initiation rights, that includes a tradition of dressing up in “new dignified formal clothing for six months after initiation.” He incorporates traditional Xhosa beadwork craft, patterns, symbolism and colors into his modern knitwear collection. Gorgeous, yes?
Psychedelia, man! Trippy vintage fabric
I love this piece. I would prefer it was cotton but a knit is good, too. Recent new arrivals here ....and lots more to come... Have a lov...
