“Doo-Ri’s aesthetic for her fall line was of the utmost importance to us to capture during the collaboration,” says Dumain, referring to the designer’s edgy lineup of urban warrior clothes in all variations of, yes, black. “We understand that accessories are the finishing note to complement apparel, so we really wanted to work closely with her to translate the vision.”
