Desmond & Dempsey

“A Sunday well spent brings a week of content”—or so the saying goes. For Molly and Joel Jeffery, the co-founders of Desmond & Dempsey, this adage must ring particularly true. After meeting in Canada, the two maintained a long-distance relationship—Molly in Australia, Joel in London—via Sunday Skype sessions. When they eventually joined forces in the same city, Sundays became their mutual downtime, with Molly opting for Joel’s button-down shirts as her outfit of choice. When the dry-cleaning bill for his coffee- and jam-stained shirts started getting out of control, the two hit upon an idea to create their own loungewear brand designing the shirts Molly wished she had… The rest is history. For this season’s collection they have taken inspiration from wild British aristocrats who stay out all Saturday night and sleep in all Sunday—though we imagine the pieces will be lovely for Saturday nights in, too.
