CityPress - - Voices - Binwe.ade­bayo@city­

It’s long been one of the most com­mon gar­ments in the tra­di­tional Ba­sotho wardrobe, but some of the big­gest names in in­ter­na­tional fash­ion have taken the blan­ket as in­spi­ra­tion for their more Western in­car­na­tions. Ev­ery­where, from the cat­walks of Louis Vuit­ton to Su­per­bal­ist’s online cat­a­logue, the Ba­sotho blan­ket has served as a muse for 21st-cen­tury fash­ion­istas.
