Watch on FN

“I was in search of items that matched my dark skin tone, but all I kept coming across were the same beige, cream and tan shades,” Jamela Acheampong told Elle this year on why she started Kahmune.  “It was overtly clear that ‘nude’ had a type.”

Enter: Kahmune’s leather ankle strap sandal — perfectly simple and chic.
