Lustables: Lalesso’s Maradufu Dress

The Maradufu Dress is a great option for looking crisp on hot, summer days.

Lalesso was formed by co-designers Olivia Kennaway and Alice Heusser after a holiday to Lamu Island off the north coast of Kenya. Their site reads that both Olivia and Alice “are children of Africa and have been wrapped in its beautiful fabrics since birth. After studying fashion design together in Cape Town the pair were impelled to harness the magical beauty of the East African ‘khanga’, also known as ‘lesso’ to create vibrant and care free summer fashion. And so, Lalesso, an exclusively summer clothing and lifestyle brand which uses the khanga as a trademark to all of its designs, was born.”

We love the Kenya made Maradufu tea dress with, as Kate from Kaight calls it a “fly away wing effect.”

On sale at Kaight for $96.60. Totally hip straw hat not included but urge you to buy…
