If there's something I love seeing, it's a designer's interpretation of children's clothing! When they can take their unique perspectives and create kids' pieces that reflect their aesthetic while still maintaining a whimsy, childlike feel, it's a home run in my book. And that's just what EDUN achieved with its recent J. Crew collaboration...a home run!
Their 7 piece mini collection was produced primarily in Kenya and evokes a cool tribal vibe. Each piece is cute enough to pick up on their own, but the fact that the collection is attached to J. J Crew's Garments for Good philanthropic initiative is even more of a reason to shop it. It will benefit the My Own Two Hands Foundation and 50% of the retail price of the items will be used to benefit St. Ann's Orphanage in Kenya.
EDUN's co-founder, Bono, had this to say about the collab..."To be in the J.Crew stores is a real thrill for us. It's also very exciting to see the resurgence of the apparel industry on the continent of Africa, where a sophisticated fashion industry is burgeoning once again. If more international companies of the scale of J Crew follow suit, more highly skilled jobs will be provided where they are desperately needed. EDUN is privileged to work with J Crew and Mickey Drexler on this collaboration."
The African people's influence is evident in these beautiful designs and I'm excited to see what J. Crew's Garments for Good program throws at us next! For now, I'm pretty sure my lil' lady bean needs those drawstring pants! Could they BE any cooler? Methinks not! Yeah, I just channeled Chandler Bing. It's been a while since I busted him out. Haha!
