The memo has been sent: Dress like royalty when you go to the theatre and wear African brands.
In the film Black Panther, the language of the kingdom of Wakanda is isiXhosa, the melodic South African language known for its distinctive clicks. With its deep heritage in Xhosa, Maxhosa-by-Laduma is one of our top picks. Pair the My Heritage My Inhertiance knit sweater with a see through organza bead collar blouseby TAIBOBACAR and black wide-leg pant and you’re ready for the premiere.
