Following on from the success of Missshapes 1st Ambassadors collection by Jamal Nxedlana, the label has announced the second instalment in its series of creative collaborations. This time Missshape teams up with media-mogul-in-the-making Thithi Nteta whose portfolio career, sees her working as a blogger, project manager, stylist, and publicist for WKND SOCIAL.
Inviting Nteta to be the labels next Ambassador was an easy decision. She is the epitome of the Missshape woman: beautiful, bold, astute, modern and super fashionable of course.
Commenting on the inspiration behind the collection Nxedlana mentioned that there was no concept initially. “The idea was to build the collection by working with separates, we only started to notice a story later on in the process,” says Nxedlana. “Parts of the collection feel Japanese, other parts have an American sportswear vibe and there’s maybe even a bit of punk in there.”
The collection will hit stores in June 2014. Members of the press are welcome to shoot the pieces before then – all requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The lookbook was shot at the Dokter and Misses showroom in Braamfontein and was photographed by the founder of Gaschette, Steve Marais.
