Get ready for a match made in heaven. Fab LA designer Diana Ra, creative director of namesake dRA Clothing, has partnered with illustrator and blogger Kelli Murray for an exclusive capsule collection as part of dRA's larger summer set, Luxe Nomad. The line will feature Murray's signature nature-inspired artwork on select dRA pieces, all designed and made in LA with locally-sourced fabrics, resulting in a conscientious collection with an undeniably artisanal aesthetic.
Kelli's original floral prints, sweet vine patterns, and playful moon illustrations show up on light, breezy fabrics like silky crepe and lush French terry, lending distinct comfort and wearability to each piece in the collection. "I’ve always loved Kelli’s simple, feminine, bohemian style," says Diana , "We married her favorite dRA styles with three of her beautifully hand-drawn illustrations that I really loved."
dRA's extensive celeb following (we're looking at you, Beyoncé) and Murray's fashion street cred (witness the magic that is kiddie brand Rylee & Cru) all but guarantee a sell-out hit. With price points ranging from $106-$180, the collection of summery tops, dresses, and rompers is super affordable and available for pre-order in April online, with the full range landing in stores come May.
