Modelled by Ajak Deng, the latest from Lemlem (a surprisingly affordable label, considering) can be describes as laidback cool with subtle hints of masculinity that mixes breezy striped tunics, tie-dyed fabrics and loose chinoes with classic unisex footwear.
Founded in 2007 by model, spokeswoman and entrepreneur Liya Kebede, Lemlem (which means ‘bloom’ or ‘flourish’ in Amharic) was born out of a need to inspire economic independence in Ethiopia and to preserve the art of weaving. Noticing that traditional weavers in her home country were losing their jobs due to a decline in demand for their art, Kebede established the label as a way of addressing this void and preserving an important part of Ethiopian history.
All items are handmade in Ethiopia from natural cotton.
Is there anybody here in the US that you’d love to battle? - “You’re not gonna believe me. Beyoncé. I think she’d battle me about presence. I have my presence… I have a lot of things but you know, some people like her can stand [still] on the stage and make you feel A LOT of things. It’s not acting. It’s not comedy. It’s real life. She’ll make you feel like you’re a nobody. It’s not [just] because people love her. She has something that nobody else has. The only person with these things on stage - without camera or without people - was Michael Jackson.” - Laurent Bourgeois (of Les Twins)
I call BULLSHIT…
