DIARRABLU brand in maldives

14 November, 2022

In celebration of tropical wanderlust, conscious contemporary lifestyle brand DIARRABLU partners with LUX* South Ari Atoll in the Maldives to present a Resort ‘23 collection named “FILUN” (Maldivian for “escape”) inspired by the island’s vibrant colours and warm culture.

As one of the biggest Maldivian islands, the award-winning resort of The Lux Collective is an ideal place for creativity with its cheerful vibes, secluded picturesque coves, and crystal-blue ocean waters. The DIARRABLU Resort ‘23 Collection is a reflection of the tropical LUX* South Ari Atoll, where blue lagoons meet four kilometers of pristine sands. The brand’s creative director Diarra Bousso and her global team travelled to the island from San Francisco, Dakar, Cape Town, Abidjan and London to create a special campaign telling the magical story behind the partnership.

“The collaboration between LUX* South Ari Atoll and DIARRABLU is not merely a fashion activation but a meaningful partnership. Travel and fashion go hand-in-hand, and anyone packing for a holiday to a faraway tropical destination will think twice about what to pack. The capsule collection's locally inspired prints and sustainable materials aligned with LUX*’s sustainability values. The handcrafted womenswear and swimsuit are versatile and eye-catching - to celebrate life and bring a little extraordinary to your holiday.” said Ms. Caroline Gaud-Perrier, Vice President – Marketing of The Lux Collective.

The Collection

The collection’s colour palette features inspiration from turquoise waters, pink flowers and white sands. The prints, Ari Blu, Atoll Rose, Atoll Blu, Playa Aqua, Isla Noir and Tukki Noir, are designed in the brand’s distinct spirit of fusing geometry and art.

The solid-coloured pieces, in aqua, coral, white and black, use sustainable materials of lyocell and tencel, made from regenerated cellulose of wood pulp. The collection features balanced and size-inclusive pieces for head-turning looks while on vacation. The clothing and jewellery are handcrafted by local artisan communities in Diarra’s native country Senegal – in line with the brand’s innovative business model with a mission to create sustainable livelihoods and reduce waste.
