Summertime by Ali Keïta
Lalesso is a fashion company started by Alice & Olivia, two fashionistas living in Kenya. The vibrant colors and patterns of the native textiles used in the Lalesso collection are based on the Kenyan "lesso" cloth. The "lesso" was originally a spotted cotton handkerchief brought to East Africa from India. The lesso evolved into what's known as the "khanga" and is now used as a sarong and head cloth. The fashionable khanga cloth is a true Kenyan classic and now has a unique style of its own. Lalesso's collection "shares with the world a hint of East Africa in some sexy, stylish and fun clothing." Also, by using the khanga, Lalesso supports the threatened textile industry and helps to improve the quality of life for the textile workers in Kenya. Wow, I'm just lovin' all the dresses, skirts and wraps! Via Style Will Save Us.
