SS13: Mellow Yellow from ASOS AFRICA

Hi guys,
I've fallen slightly in love with the latest collection from ASOS Africa. ASOS Africa is produced in collaboration with SOKO Kenya, allowing communities to establish sustainable business through local craftsmanship. It's the perfect combination of stylish glamorous fashion, and doing something for the greater good. And with its bold yellow and green motifs, it's just perfect for summer:

Traditional Kenyan kanga fabric is used as an all-over print on trousers and crop tops or inserted on a tailored quilted jacket.

Prices start at £25 for a crop top and range to £50 for the full-printed maxi dress. But it is the loose kimono and the fitted jacket that I am most excited about: both are perfect for teaming with a white cotton tee for effortless casual summer dressing.

What do you guys think of the new ASOS AFRICA collection? Are there any pieces you're dying to get your hands on? 

Love Tor x
