Entrepreneur Draya Michele has amassed 7.6 million followers by launching her own fashion and beauty brands, Mint Swim, Fine Ass Girls, and Brand Nails. All three are known, first and foremost, for being cool. In her latest, very cool move, she's teamed up with Revolve-offshoot superdown for a collection that offers the glamazon looks she's known for at a budget-friendly price.
The superdown x Draya Michele collection is made with Los Angeles’ nightlife in mind: It meshes Michele's edgy style with the slinky silhouettes superdown is known for. The line hit superdown.com and revolve.com on Oct. 22 but Michele says it's only the first of many drops.
A new selection of pieces will be released every month through February 2020, which Michele says gave her "the opportunity to create and curate for multiple seasons and experiment with different styles and materials." She goes on to explain that shoppers can expect "darker hues and deep tones for fall and winter, embellishments and sequins for the holidays and New Years Eve, and romantic and playful cuts into the beginning of spring and festival season."
"I created this collection with the superdown girl in mind — she’s the leader of the group, the life of the party, cute & sexy with a little bit of edge," Michele says. "I wanted to offer playful looks and aspirational styles at an affordable price point."
A press release about the launch says that Michele was named one of superdown’s first ambassadors when superdown launched as a Gen Z spinoff to Revolve in April 2019. This is the first influencer collab from the brand, and Michele makes this drop even sweeter with prices between $38 and $110.
The current size range of the line is XXS - XL, but a superdown rep confirmed that superdown x Draya will have extended sizing starting next year. Ready to shop right now? Here are some of the coolest picks in the collection.
