City print series: Jodphur pink

This week's City print story is less about the 'Jodphur' in the name and more about the pink. Rani pink was one of the first colours that made me fall in love with India - its hue is so much that is evocative of India to me... the pigments at Holi, the saris, the architecture, flower garlands... it's the happiest colour and on a personal note, reminds me of how Dilli Grey first started... On my frequent buying trips to India, friends would always ask me to bring back quilts from my 'special shop' in Rajhasthan - they had all fallen in love with this gorgeous pop of pink, so I began bringing back 1, then 2... and the rest...

City print series: Kota floral

The inspiration behind the second in our 'City Prints' series is the city of Kota on the banks of the Chambal, Rajasthan’s only permanent river. This wide, watery artery running through the city is great for boat trips (and crocodile spotting!) and compared to other Indian rivers, is relatively pollution-free - making it a sanctuary for floral and fauna, alike. This tranquil, powdery blue is a reoccuring visual reference when it comes to 'Kota' - including the traditional wall painting in the City Palace in Jaipur - once the centre of power in Rajhasthan, housing the Kota princedom’s treasury, courts, arsenal, armed forces and state offices. I've always been drawn to the intricate, elegant design here - it somehow feels...

City print series: Bikaner Floral

For high summer we have launched three new prints and colourways - each inspired by a different Rajhasthani city. We wanted to share a little about the travel inspiration behind each print and the little corner of India they evoke... First up - the vibrant, dust-swirling desert Fort town of Bikaner - an outpost away from the tourist trail of Rajhasthan, dominated by the coral pink Junagarh Fort. Within the 7km long city wall, the old town still has a medieval feel - a labyrinth of narrow streets within which to wander and get lost. Stumble across ancient, ornate temples and feel part of this sanctuary within the desert. Beyond the city walls, the Gajner Wildlife Sanctuary at the Gajner...

NEW LAUNCH: Summer of love boho dresses

The new 'Summer of Love' collection feels my most personal yet. The prints are immediately nostalgic to me, triggering memories of 70s prints, my mum's maxi dresses and that boho glamour that beguiled me as a little girl... My sister and I would spend our weekends as children, knee deep in white sand, splashing around in crystal water chasing jelly fish, and diving off junks (a type of boat) anchored off the islands in Hong Kong. My early childhood years were spent much like this; beautifully slow and rich with experience. Our explorer parents led us to new and exotic places, like Saudi Arabia where we also lived and spent afternoons swimming with little fish nibbling at our toes (this...
