The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Oscar-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter about the 2,100 spectacular looks she designed for the film, including outfitting the new underwater civilization, the Talokanil, inspired by Mayan culture. For the film, Carter collaborated with Adidas and their School for Experiential Education in Design (SEED) program, which teaches and mentors BIPOC women, to create some apparel looks and a pair of sneakers for the characters of Shuri, Riri and Okoye (Letitia Wright, Dominique Thorne and Danai Gurira).
While those bespoke pieces are unique to the film, the sportswear company launched The Wakanda Forever Collection of sneakers, apparel and accessories in September, and many pieces are still stocked. Other companies getting in the Marvel game include Actively Black, Citizen Watches, MeUndies, RockLove jewelry, Bevel, MAC Cosmetics, Funko, Blk & Bold and more.

On Nov. 1, MAC Cosmetics dropped a limited-edition, 18-piece Black Panther: Wakanda Forever collection of beauty products in vibrant hues and shimmery metallics. The line was created in collaboration with Joel Harlow, makeup department head for the Marvel Studios film.

The Wakanda Athletics line of logo sweats, T-shirts and tanks, sports bras, shorts, and a varsity jacket calls to mind scenes in the new film shot at MIT where science whiz Riri (Thorne) is an undergrad. We are leaning into the cropped short-sleeved hoodie as an especially cute layering piece.
