Following last month's incredibly cool editorial styled by local blogstar Stop It Right Now, The Dreslyn is back at it with an equally-inspiring project. For its very first brand collaboration, the cult-favorite e-tailer has teamed up with cool NY-based lingerie line Land of Women to produce Land's very first swimwear collection. We're giving you a first look at the collab's Photoshop-free campaign, which stars The Dreslyn's go-to models and real friends, including stylist Kayten Schmidt.
Shot in The Dreslyn's DTLA studio and styled by Land of Women designer Mckenzie Raley, the shoot concept was an "army of women," focusing on natural beauty, empowerment, and 1990s minimalism. "Retouching creates illusions that aren't part of our ethos," Raley tells us. "The women in our photos are naturally beautiful, but more importantly, they're strong, independent and authentic—that's what we want to convey."
Above, take a peek at some of our favorite looks from the classic, all-black scheme collection (with pricing), and shop them all here starting today.
