Lalesso Unveils Resort Collection 2015
Cape Town Fashion Week 2015 unveils first Lalesso Resort Collection
Lalesso recently showcased their first ever resort collection Sultan's Parade at Cape Town Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015. The exclusively summer label, which was recently nominated for this year's Kenya Fashion Awards as Established Designer of the Year, describes itself as a luxury fashion & lifestyle brand that "supports transparent, sustainable, eco and ethical fashion." Inspired by the East African khanga cloth of Kenya, co-founders Alice Heusser and Olivia Kennaway launched Lalesso in Cape Town in 2007 by releasing 100 of their trademark Lalesso skirts. Now having expanded into a resort collection, Lalesso unveils more of Kenya's vibrant prints and patterns in easy, free-flowing silhouettes. From kaftan dresses and rompers to two-piece beach-ready ensembles, looks from the Lalesso resort collection retain an elevated sophistication even when paired with summer's most comfortable outdoor footwear. Take a look for yourselves in the above gallery, featuring South African model Aluad Deng Anei in Lalesso.
