Although the only three S’s on our minds at the moment are (the dreaded) September, School and Lana’s Summertime Sadness, here are the S’s that have made Notting Hill Carnival what it is today.
We're thoroughly enjoying getting our head into books and out of our phones. Now the evenings are lighter there is nothing nicer than an early night with a good book.
This list is GREAT and giving us much inspiration of what to buy next...
S/S17 Lookbook shoot shot by editorial fashion photographer Sophie Ellen. New season embroidered tshirts, hoodies and sweats with phrases from Pulp Fiction, Wu tang, Mean Girls and more.
The Delores team love a little hip hop, and this new offering from Kendrick Lamar is a firm favourite of ours. Humble is something we have always strived to be as a brand, and we love that somebody is calling the industry out for being fake & photoshopped.
Best friends in Delores is something we love to see. As a brand we aim to empower and support all women and girls. Here's some behind the scenes photos from a shoot with local photographer Oli Stockwell.
An iconic noughties classic. This movie taught us everything we wanted to know about being a teen, guys and embarrassing moms. The quotes have stayed in our minds for so many years, a true female classic.
The Delores team tell us about their female inspirations and aspirations for International Women's Day. Featuring artists, designers and musicians, these ladies form a well rounded multi talented group.
Ahh Usher. Music to our teen ears. A little bit of Raymond takes us back and makes us reminisce. We can thank the good lads over at Tropico for putting this gem back in our heads.
We love producing customs, especially for girls who inspire us! These two gorge customs are headed off to blogger Brittany Bathgate, and model and body positivity advocate Charli Howard.
We love the boys over at Tropico. They provide us with fine, funky tunes on nights out in Norwich. This sweat has been produced as a collaboration in celebration of their 5th birthday.
From the 17th - 21st of Feb, the fash pack descended on London. We show you our favourite street style looks featuring signature Delores pink and streetwear fits.
To get you in the mood for V Day, we asked our favourite Norwich DJ's for a sultry mix of r'n'b for you lovely lot. Tropico sure know how to throw a party, and they sure know how to make us wanna bump n grind. Pour a glass of vino, settle down and have a listen.
We have had the biggest crush on Nadia Lee since forever. Photographer, Filmmaker, Model and all round cool girl, Nadia is pretty much everything we aspire to be. This is why we were so excited to have the chance to create a custom tee for her back at the beginning of 2016. Now this year, with the release of our Drake collection and the introduction of our signature pink sweater, we got the chance to make her a custom one-off piece again.
Nadia is a mega fan of the film "Gummo" by Harmony Korine, so for the custom she wanted the phrase "ain't nothing new for trash like you" from a scene in the movie. We love how different the phrases she chooses are and where she chooses inspiration from. Her last Delores custom was a quote from drag icon Divine and was so popular with Delores customers people started requesting their own Nadia Lee x Delores tee.
Working with girls who we aspire to, inspire us and support the same causes as us is something we love to do. Keep an eye out for more exclusive customs coming soon...
We listen to our customers and we LOVE to please them. That's why we take on board everything you gorgeous lot have to say to us. Including which items you love the most, what you want in different colourways, and even when you want it (right now.) That's why we've been working hard on more goodies for you. For the new pre-collection, classic phrases make appearances once again in new colourways on new garments and with the gorgeous new packaging, badges and stickers. Mega heart eyes! This collection is true to us. Expect classic grey, pink and white, but with new branded "Delores" embroidery, old favourites from the "True Romance" collection, and maybe even a little bit of Biggie. We hope you love these classics as much as us, and that's what we hope they become. Classic, wearable pieces in your wardrobe with a little touch of us and a little touch of pink.
Here's a sneak peak....
We are super excited to announce that Delores is now stocked in two great stores in our hometown; Catfish and Dogfish. We are stocked alongside other great brands such as Carhartt, Fred Perry and Dickies and have full size runs available for guys and girls so both genders can look fab in their Delores goodies. Pink is definitely not just for girls, all our fits are classic boyfriend fits so they're lovely, loose and comfy for either gender. Perfect for layering and SUPER soft.
There's still a few days left to pop in before Christmas and pick yourself up your favourite piece, so head to either Catfish or Dogfish and grab yourself or somebody you love a Delores christmas gift.
We love making Instagram friends, and the girls over at the London Fashion Agency were sweet enough to feature our 'Hot Love' tee as part of their 2016 Christmas Gift Guide! Shop the product below and check out some other great independent brands <3
