If you're looking for a way to do good while looking badass in denim this Spring, direct your attention to the Diesel + EDUN collaboration, which landed online today. EDUN, the apparel brainchild of Bono and his wife Ali Hewson, sources material from its Conservation Cotton Initiative (CCI) in Uganda and manufactures the clothes elsewhere in Africa. The couple bonded with Diesel founder Renzo Rosso over their shared love of the continent, and—boom—denim separates for all.
A few pairs of jeans, one pair of jorts, a cozy looking sweatshirt-dress, a tank, a top, and a jacket comprise the women's collection, and prices range from $88 for the cotton tank to $348 for the denim jacket. You can shop the collab online only through March 10, after which it will be available in Diesel stores.
