|A couple of days ago I had the chance to discover the Diesel x EDUN collection and to grab my favourite piece.
I chose this draped dress with African symbols feat. a belt with Kenyan metalwork.

Diesel x EDUN present a 25-piece collection inspired by African creativity. Every single piece is entirely sourced and manufactured
in Africa with fine cotton from Uganda. EDUN is a contemporary collection for men and women and was found in 2005 by singer Bono
& Ali Hewson. EDUN’s main focus is the trading relationship with Africa and it’s position as creative force in contemporary fashion.
Every piece of the Diesel x Edun collection reflects the creative spirit of Africa:
Malian textile prints are echoied in the denim lining and across the jersey pieces in the collection.
Embroidery details reference traditional Zulu weaving patterns, while the dresses feature Kenyan metalwork.
Running through the whole collection you can find 4 unique symbols: Unity, Eternity, Creativity and Fertility.
The Diesel x EDUN collection will launch at selected Diesel stores worldwide and online from March 2013.
