Totes, y’all! Reese Witherspoon and her Southern-enthused lifestyle brand Draper James are branching out and partnering with luxury e-retailer Net-a-Porter on an exclusive capsule collection. Featuring a mix of apparel and accessories, some of the collection is available now on the Net-a-Porter site.
Witherspoon, seen most recently in HBO’s hit miniseries Big Little Lies, said in a press release announcing the collection, “I am so excited to introduce the world of Draper James to the Net-a-Porter customer. I hope women everywhere love the clothes as much as I do!”
Items up on the site now include a cutout printed silk short-sleeve dress in navy blue with a flamingo pattern ($485.00) and an off-the-shoulder broderie anglaise white cotton top ($240.00).
Witherspoon launched Draper James in 2015. On the brand’s website, she shares the inspiration behind it: “I started this company to honor my Southern heritage and, in particular, my grandparents who were, and still are, the greatest influences in my life: my grandmother, Dorothea Draper, and my grandfather, William James Witherspoon. My grandparents taught me everything I know about gracious Southern living. From them, I learned to dress and act like a lady, to take pride in my home, to reach out to help a neighbor, and to always invite everyone in for a visit.”
Since the label’s debut, Draper James has quickly expanded to also include physical store locations in Nashville, Dallas, and Lexington, Kentucky. In addition to a range of apparel, accessories, and home goods, some of Draper James’ more popular items are canvas tote bags with cheeky sayings like, “hello, sugar,” “Totes, Y’all,” and “What would Dolly do?”
While old Southern charm is in the brand’s DNA, a modern sensibility is also present. As Witherspoon notes on the website, “We’re proud to say that over 40% of our products are made in the United States, and we’re always looking to produce more in America and, in particular, the South. With Draper James, our goal is to bring contemporary yet timeless Southern style to your wardrobe and your home, no matter where you live.”
The full twenty-one-piece collection for Net-a-Porter will be available in June.
