H&M released their Spring/ Summer 14 collection featuring Angolan model Maria Borges.

Swedish multinational retailer H&M recently released this new set of photographs for their Spring/ Summer 14 collection featuring the stunning Angolan model Maria Borges sporting the company's garments. One of our favorite African female models, Borges was discovered at Elite Model Look Angola 2010. An Angolan born-and-bred talent, she's taken runways and beauty campaigns by storm since then. Borges has worked with the likes of Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Dior, and Marc Jacobs amongst other elite brands and designers. As to the H&M collection, the pieces are gorgeous, simple, and free of pretense — they're the perfect fit for a chill season. Scroll through our gallery to see the pictures and if you want to talk about it, tweet @okayafrica with #MariaBorgesHM.
