Trevor Stuurman x MaXhosa

Photographer and Creative Director, Trevor Stuurman celebrates 5 years of South African Knitwear Designer, MaXhosa by Laduma. He has taken a series of photos featuring South African personalities, Kefilwe Mabote, Karabo The Curator, Shelley Mokoena and Kwena Baloyi; all wearing pieces from the brand’s Autumn Winter 2017 and Spring Summer 2016 collections.

Here’s what Trevor had to say;

MaXhosa celebrates five years since established as a fashion brand in 2012. Since then the brand has compelling times and has been celebrated as one of the leading brands in Africa. The AW17 collection features the best selling patterns MaXhosa has innovated over the past five years.

Now that the brand has transcended from infancy stage to established heights, the brand is now ready to reign as a leading fashion and lifestyle brand in Africa.

The collection seeks to imagine an utopian scenario of how an authority would dress during Xhosa king and queen’s coronation in the current day and age.

    Amazing patterns. Love Trevor’s work. Wonder if I can afford him for my next photoshoot. Can the Maxhosa clothes be worn in hot weather because I am interested in purchasing?

      Yup you can!

      I’m wearing one right now, it’s a short sleeve one, today hasn’t been particularly hot in Lagos and my office does well with air conditioning so I’m guessing it’s a good day to wear it. I wouldn’t walk around wearing it on a typical Lagos day though. Caveat emptor!

      I love Maxhosa’s work and his consistency with keeping to his Xhosa roots. Great guy all around.
