We love the 2015 Resort collection from South African fashion brand Lalesso run by co-creators Alice Heusser and Olivia Kennaway. The brand always seeks inspiration from the vibrant East African khanga cloth for their print rich designs – this is evident in their new collection.
The exclusively summer label literally engulfs an effortless sense of freedom through its classic yet uniquely distinguishable silhouettes. We are excited about their first Resort collection.
Each style in the collection offers a vibrant palette and a choice of intricate patterns. Each piece is also available in either of four print options and we adore every piece. For this collection they use environmentally friendly 100% bamboo fabric as well as 100% PET made up of recycled plastic bottles.
Lalesso also uses the creative talent of Kenyan artisans in many aspects of the designs, incorporating various design initiatives and supporting them in doing so. These include beaded bracelets on the swing tags, hand carved coconut buttons, masai beading, brass work among others.
