Could anything be prettier than the Khanga fabrics of Eastern Africa richly decorated with the rope accessories of South African designer Mary Pichulik? Hardly.
Birthing a range of duffels, fold over clutches and purses, this collaboration began when Lalesso invited Pichulik to create the neck pieces for their much anticipated spring summer 2013 Collection at Mercedes Benz fashion week cape town.
After a meeting of minds and a mutual appreciation for Resort collections, traveling, Africa and aesthetics of the exotic, it seemed only natural for both parties to join forces again. The bag collection is a marriage between the Lalesso fabrics with the PICHULIK ropes and accessories that rings summer bells with visions of a romantic holiday of dancing ‘til dawn, midnight salty-sea swims, exotic markets with decadent smells of mandarin and sweet papaya.
These are bags to carry you through those lazy lunches, lovely dates, bicycle adventures and evenings where you breathe in the promises of Summer and get ready to just – let go.
