Wait... is Edun purposefully called that because it's a fashion line and it's the opposite of "nude?" I never, ever realized that.

I think that is a happy coincidence. Nude was also the name of Bono's brother's organic restaurant.

Hm, I thought it was called something different, but I guess one can own different restaurants over the course of one's life. Where did the name Edun come from after all?

I think he also had an Italian restaurant. Norman has had a few business ventures.

I am not sure, my assumption was always that E-d-e-n wasn't used with because it was already taken or to not be sacrilegious.

Is my U2 memory failing me, or didn't Bono once say that he asked his brother about one of his businesses and he said "I'm barely treading water.....I feel like I'm running to stand still"?......hence the inspiration for the song title?

Your memory is correct. I think it is in U2 by U2.

Not getting the chunky crystal things by Ali's collarbones. . . are they earrings or a necklace. Doesn't quite go with the dress.

I could not figure out what she was wearing on her neck.

According to a post on Edun's Facebook page, the crystals are part of the neckline of the dress.  Maybe if she had worn her hair up, it would have been easier to tell what the things were and why they were there?
