The Edit: The Folklore Team Select Their Favorite Pieces From The Bi-Annual Sale


The Folklore’s end-of-the-year seasonal Sale only comes around twice a year and along with it is the chance to grab the pieces you may have had your eye on, without breaking the bank. As usual, it’s filled with clothing, jewelry and accessories from some of our favorite designers from Africa and the diaspora. This time around, we’ve even brought back some of the most coveted and timeless past-season pieces from Nigerian brands Fruché, Abiola Olusola, Sisiano and more for one final time. 

To help you make the best choices, we asked some avid and seasoned shoppers, AKA Team Folklore, to narrow their wish lists down to the one item they will be snapping up from the Sale before it ends. Read on for their picks, below.

Asymmetrical Wool Gilet by MmusoMaxwell

Vanessa, Associate Buyer

“This Wool Gilet by MmusoMaxwell is very versatile and I like its neutral shade. You can play around with it by wearing it up or down, casual or in a formal setting. It’s easy to pair up with a pair of jeans, skirt or tailored pants. Even with a pair of white sneakers or a kitten heel.”

Orange Military Fez Hat by Simon and Mary

Amira, Founder and CEO

“I don’t go many places without one of my Simon and Mary Military Fez Hats and this orange version will be a great addition to my collection. It’s comfortable, stylish and African-made, meaning I get to take a little bit of the continent with me wherever I go.”

Floral Cave Shirt Dress by Orange Culture

Kanyinsola, Digital Marketing Manager

“This is one of my favorite pieces from Orange Culture. It’s a statement dress but the flowing silhouette makes it relaxed and easy-going at the same time so you can dress it up or down as you wish.”

Galaxy Wrap Dress by W35T

Lesego, Marketing Associate

“I love this wrap dress from South African brand W35T. It’s the perfect item to go effortlessly from a cute brunch to afternoon sundowners.”

Basket Skirt by Gozel Green

Zha, Digital Content producer

“I love a statement piece and, in particular, an item that makes me turn my head. A case in point is this red Basket Skirt from Gozel Green. It screams originality, confidence and beauty!”
