The Market: lemlem Marta Gauze Dress

27 Jun

lemlem "Marta" Gauze Dress, $220,

It’s summertime and last thing we should be spending too much time on is getting dressed. On the best days, our look consists of three elements: the dress, the bag and the shoe. This light-as-air dress from lemlem is a definite contender for one of the best dresses of the season. We are obsessed with just about everything concerning Liya Kebede and her collection lemlem is no exception. Made from handwoven gauze this dress can stand up to the most brutal of urban summers and we love that lemlem helps to foster economic independence in Kebede’s native country of Ethiopia , as well as keeps alive the tradition of handmade fabrics. Visit to view the full collection and to see the super cool blog.
