Dilly & Carlo

Quintessentially chic, Dilly’s has been a popular and well-respected local brand for over 25 years. Established in 1987, Dilly’s was created by Dilani Wijeyesekera to cater to Colombo’s thirst for high-end designer wear with a local twist. As the company grew and the Dilly’s repertoire expanded, a second brand was created, this time to cater to menswear. Carlo was born in 2007 and exemplified stylish men’s clothing for all ages. Individually, both these brands have carved a name for themselves in the local fashion industry with many generations aspiring to express themselves with the casual elegance that has become synonymous with the two individual brands, Dilly’s and Carlo.

Marking a new era in this formidable family company is the joining of these two brands to create a more powerful and unified brand presence as ‘Dilly & Carlo’. Harnessing the unique selling points of each label, Dilly & Carlo join forces as an umbrella brand, housing their distinct designer ranges to cater to the modern man and woman’ s entire wardrobe requirement

Focusing on diversified design and supreme quality Dilly & Carlo come together as a family orientated store, showcasing trendy clothing for all age groups.

This range of garments are priced moderately and are sourced with utmost care for quality and styling and are sourced both locally and overseas.

With the rebranding comes a new logo; crisp, stylish and sophisticated, Dilly & Carlo is united with a symbol of a Hummingbird.The Hummingbird is symbolic of resurrection and may be the ideal icon for a brand that is re-launching with a stronger brand identity. The Hummingbird’s unique ability to fly backwards links directly to the nature of the fashion industry Dilly & Carlo is a part of. The importance of reflecting back at the heritage of fashion, drawing from classic trends and using the history of the Dilly’s mother brand as a foundation for moving forward. Similarly, the Hummingbird’s mastery in hovering in one spot, lends itself to being in the moment. Likewise, to Dilly & Carlo, this symbolizes the understanding and embracing of current trends and solidifying their new position in the local fashion landscape. Just as the Hummingbird is known to signify love, joy and beauty, this dynamic company seems to embody the appeal that has become synonymous with the hummingbird.
