BRAND SPOTLIGHT – D.L. & Co Luxury Lifestyle
D.L. & Co is an LA-based luxury lifestyle brand, which produces the most exquisite candles – sold in the likes of Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Selfridges. The FashionBite team fell in love with these brass enamelled apple candles we saw at a press day recently.
D.L. & Co was launched by Douglas Little in 2003, who said his desire was to bring ‘objects of opulence and beauty to those who yearn for the uncommon.’ Little has had an eclectic background, studying calligraphy, botany, historical costume and product design, before joining a cosmetic company where he worked for eight years. Afterwards, he headed to the famous Grasse region in S. France to study in-depth the art of perfumery.
Upon completing his studies, he headed back to the US to open the first American boutique to sell perfumed candles in art glass containers alongside porcelain, jewellery, luxury writing papers and bath products all defined by his signature look – a blend of Edwardian decadence, Asian mystery and Rock n Roll edginess.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Little has also expanded his creative vision to window installations, known throughout the industry for their originality and appearing at Bergdorf Goodman and Barney’s New York, amongst others.
