Where the Sahel scene was once rowdy and raucous, it is now overrun by earthy aesthetics and a languid vibe that we're totally into - here are our favourite stores that encompass that new style.
Last week we published a piece about the ethereal boutique-escapes that have sashayed onto the Sahel scene. There’s a certain nature-inspired earthy aesthetic and lushly languid vibe that’s replaced the raucous rowdiness of previous North Coast summers. Well, it seems the sleek simplicity has seeped into the seaside style scene with a number of lush lifestyle destinations carefully curating the most gorgeous local, regional and international summer collections. Here are our favourite Sahel stores of the summer…
