Since its launch in 2016, Carolina Guedes Cruz’s fashion brand Kleed has been synonymous with chic African wildlife patterned kimonos and loungewear. Guedes Cruz’s family once farmed cotton and jute in Angola, and on her first visit to Africa in her early 20s she fell in love with the continent. Since then, the one-time fashion executive for Gucci and Dunhill has returned again and again to volunteer on conservation projects in Namibia, Botswana and South Africa. Kleed now donates five per cent of its proceeds to support the work of the anti-poaching charity Saving the Survivors, a leader in rhino conservation based in South Africa and Mozambique. Among the standout pieces in her latest collection are the geometric-motif cotton Leo pyjamas (€130) and the exuberantly coloured Perrot robe in silk and cotton ikat (€300).
