Every year we dedicate one issue to the relationship between fashion and design, and look at the way similar trends emerge in both. Our Fashion Issue 97 goes on shelf on Monday the 21 July. In it, we feature some of the best lookbooks of local fashion designers. If we had seen this collection in time, it would have been in there too! It is absolutely exquisite.
It’s no secret that at DECO we are mad for Africa, so it figures that we have a little crush on Lalesso, a luxury African fashion and lifestyle brand. It supports entirely transparent, sustainable, eco and ethical production facilities in Kenya and South Africa. Co creators Alice Heusser and Olivia Kennaway seek inspiration from the vibrant east African Khanga cloth in the print rich designs. The exclusively summer label engulfs an effortless sense of freedom through it’s classic yet uniquely distinguishable silhouettes.
