As the youngest recipient of the prestigious LVMH prize (having won in 2019), South African designer Thebe Magugu has captivated the industry with his idiosyncratic style. Capturing the attention of Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, Magugu was tasked to create a capsule collection in collaboration with Dior and the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project. The Thebe Magugu x CTAOP see's the fledgling designer reimagine the maison's iconic styles including the logo-heavy Book tote and the classic New Look.
Both being from South Africa, Magugu was the prime choice to create a collection for Theron's charity. Established in 2007, the project aims to provide resources towards the support of health, education and safety of youth in South Africa. The covetable capsule collection highlights the charity's community-building approach with the introduction of the sisterhood emblem adorning wardrobe staples like a classic t-shirt, and silk scarves, and combat boots. To support the initiative of brand ambassador Charlize Theron (who has been the face of Dior since 2004), a donation has been made to the CTAOP on behalf of Dior.
The Thebe Magugu x CTAOP capsule will be available from 27 October.
