You may have seen Lemlem products in a boutique or J.Crew. That’s where my eye first caught a flash of the bodacious and brightly striped scarves. Then, when I ever discovered that literally everything Lemlem makes is striped- well, as you know- stripes are simply Blair’s and my favorite!
Beneath the stripes, at the heart of Lemlem, is a mission to provide sustainable employment for artisan weavers and preserve this historic art form in Ethiopia. Liya Kebede, the founder of Lemlem and a well know model and actress, started the company in 2007. Lemlem has grown in the past 7 years, expanding its offerings and economic impact.
The use of color blocking, stripes, and pops of color contrasted with varied neutrals keeps the collection fresh and effortlessly chic. I’m particularly fond of the blue and orange pattern in images 1, 5 and 10 and I would dress up the gray and white stripe pant with a cute pop color pump and silk blouse.
What summer styles are you looking forward to rocking?
