A couple of months ago, I visited Grey for the first time ever! Contrary to my wild and extravagant expectations, the store was small and minimal, giving it that expensive feel of a hidden treasure. Hanging against the crisp white wall was a long rack of a bursting collection that I’d hope to be featured in my wardrobe one glorious day. From printed patterns to woven fabrics it was obvious that each piece was well thought out and delicately constructed.
As I waltzed in, excited to have finally made it to the store, I was surprised to be welcomed by two of the three designers, Rukky and Tola. They talked me through all their different pieces and a few ideas and as expected I “oohh-ed” and “ahh-ed” as I finally got the chance to appreciate these pieces up close.
Their entire range consists of the essential C’s: Corporate, Casual and Cocktail or as I’d like to call them, the 3 C’s! With this strategy, you’re sure to be prepared for every occasion at the drop of a hat! The variety of colours and variation in fabrics was a long way from the blandness that the name ‘Grey’ suggests and more so that before, I can honestly say that Grey is most definitely one of my favourite brands in Nigeria, I just hope to see a little more of an African touch in their breath-taking designs.
Ps: I’m loving the Olympics. Shame about Nigeria though, I wish we’d at least get a bronze!!!!
