In love with Lulama

Our South African girl crush styles five perfect spring looks.

Lulama Mlambo – better known as Lulama Wolf – started blogging back in 2010. Since then she has emerged as one of the style icons to watch, and as one of the young, creative South African voices to listen to. Lulama’s style is personal and unique but always on trend – we love her mix of sporty vibes, sharp tailoring and quirky accessories. The Jozi-based blogger was recently in Paris for fashion week, where we caught up with her in-between shows.
