Thebe Magugu Debuts Autumn/Winter 2023 Collection Titled “Folklorics”

The South African designer showed his fall collection in Paris via private consultations and with a lookbook taken by documentary photographer Pieter Hugo. Further emphasising his African ancestry, he chose African folklore as his theme for the upcoming season. Showing his aptitude for prints with a nautical print of a 19th-century ship mid-capsize that was inspired by “Mami Wata” tales about sea sirens luring sailors to their deaths.

The print was splashed across plissé skirts, wide-legged trousers, silk-crepe shirt-dresses, and go-anywhere Nylon jackets. A particularly stunning chartreuse silk-crepe dress with a woven panel inspired by fishing nets is available in a number of body shapes. Kaftan silhouettes are also designed to fit different body types. The line-up is completed by form-fitting knitwear in light and heavy gauges, some of which include jumper dresses with cape accents.

The designer has achieved remarkable heights on the global fashion scene in recent years thanks to partnerships with Adidas, Valentino, and Christian Dior. In 2019, the designer won the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize.
