THIS WEEK'S DISCOVERY:
the lemlem Elsa shirt
We adore lemlem, a collection started by model and International
Goodwill Ambassador Liya Kebede as a way for weavers in her

fashion market while creating prosperity in another," Kebede says
of these traditionally handwoven creations. Her style point of view:
"We take inspiration from iconic styles and reinvent them with a
lemlem twist." This top, for instance, was influenced by the classic
Parisian Breton striped shirt and recreated by Ethiopian hands in
gauzy cotton and with the brand's signature pop of neon at the
cuffs and hem. A true labor of love...
