Two iconic award-winning British brands – baby and childrenswear designer Rachel Riley and nursery brand Clair de Lune – have joined forces to launch an exclusive nursery collection.
The collection – which will be sold through Rachel Riley and Clair de Lune’s website, as well as through selected retailers nationwide – comprises Clair de Lune’s classic nursery designs alongside three of Rachel Riley’s most iconic Heritage collection prints: My Little Prince, My Little Princess and the gender-neutral Bunny print.
Clair de Lune’s Bedside Crib (£249), Bassinet with Deluxe Stand (£249), Folding Breathable Crib (£179) and Changing & Play Mat (£49) all feature a choice of the Rachel Riley prints in cotton satin, alongside other products from the Rachel Riley Heritage collection including Bunting (£25), Sleeping Bag (£49) and Hooded Towel (£25). All the products in the collection have been designed and produced in the UK to the highest specifications.
“This just seems like the perfect collaboration” comments Rachel Riley. “I was excited to work with Clair de Lune’s Polly Rodgers as she is one of the most knowledgeable people in the nursery industry. We wanted to create something very special and timeless, drawing on the heritage of both of our brands and we wanted to make sure there would be something for everyone, which is why prices start from just £25. We have been planning this collaboration for over a year and have been working hard behind the scenes, but it’s been wonderful to have the opportunity to work with a brand with such history and for all these products to be manufactured in Great Britain.”
Clair de Lune was originally formed in 1943 and their knowledge of nursery product manufacturing is second to none, with safety being at the core of everything they do.
“We are just as excited to be partnering with Rachel Riley on this wonderful project. Our combined knowledge and experience adds up to over 100 years, which is something of an achievement in itself,” adds Polly Rodgers. “Rachel has brought her expertise in fashion and design and combined it with our best-selling products to create what we believe to be the very best in terms of baby bedding and nursery products. We hope our customers enjoy it as much as we do.”
