Lemlem Launches its First Swim Collection
Supermodel Liya Kebede’s made-in Africa brand, lemlem, is not only fashion-forward but also all the way on board with sustainability. Channeling the breezy vibes of its caftans and lightweight separates, the label’s debut swimwear was created with a holiday spirit in mind.
The Resort collection features handwoven patterns on chemical-free fabrics and labels made from organic cotton, satin and recycled paper. Tops retail for $125, and bottoms range from $95 to $125. All are available at lemlem.com and select stores.
For the fourth edition of its Dior Lady Art series, luxury fashion house Dior tapped South African visionary Athi-Patra Ruga and African-American creative Mickalene Thomas to design limited-edition iterations of the iconic Lady Dior bag. With a timeless style from the label’s storied arsenal, the initiative includes Black craftsmanship. After a prelaunch in December, the Lady Bag capsule collection goes on sale on January 4 at select Dior stores across the country.
