World Cup Fashion: Shakira's Tees

We're blogging this with one eye glued to our TV screens as Uruguay and Mexico battle it out for the top spot. But before this becomes a long-winded spiel about the joys of the World Cup (trust us, we're tempted!), we're here to keep things strictly fashion :-)

This is one of Africa's finest moments to showcase it's budding - and blooming! - fashion scene, which we at SLiq aim to celebrate everyday. We hope several of South Africa's designers in particular have found creative ways to stick their necks out [apart from Africa Fashion Week], and we hope they'll share the spotlight with the rest of their African brethren :-) All that remains to be seen and it's early days yet, but Shakira has a collection of cool tees out in collaboration with UNICEF, MANGO and her Barefoot Foundation to promote education in South Africa.

The tees come in a variety of four styles - "black, yellow and red, with graphics including an illustration of a lion's face and the phrases "Waka Waka" and "This Time For Africa." Simba, anyone? Super cute and for a worthy cause, too. We like lots!

The tees should now be available in MANGO stores and online. For more information, click here.
