ONCE AGAIN DIESEL AND EDUN HAVE PAIRED UP TO CREATE DIESEL+EDUN AND STUDIO AFRICA, A COLLECTION AND A COLLECTIVE IN SEARCH OF A BRIGHTER FUTURE—ONE THAT INVOLVES AFRICAN VOICES
Diesel and EDUN have a lot in common. Both brands are known for their practical, forward-thinking designs, and they both share a passion for finding new and sustainable resources in Africa to build a better global trade. In 2012, Diesel founder Renzo Rosso and EDUN founders Ali Hewson and Bono joined forces to create Diesel+EDUN, a collaboration that includes collections, a Tumblr, and Studio Africa, the program that highlights African musicians and artists.
As a VMagazine.com exclusive, we'd like to introduce you to a few of Studio Africa's picks for the ones to watch in Africa right now, modeling clothes made in—and with materials fully sourced from—the continent, of course.
