How to Joy Top



Deborah and Hillary launched their first line of clothing, dihla b, in 2010 and infused their collections with a keen sense of style drawing from their years of working in fashion. It became an instant hit with Milan’s chicest crowd. Because of their hectic lives as working moms running from meetings to after school activities, jumping on and off planes and trying to fit it all in, they had been searching for that one easy piece that could go places…look fabulous from morning meetings to evening dinners as well as being easily thrown into a suitcase and looking great on arrival. The Joy top was born!
Designed from their living rooms after many early morning and late night talks and after many cups of coffee and a few glasses of wine… it is an amazing top that transforms into a vest or a dress and can be worn in at least 7 different ways.

It’s chic, it’s easy to wear and suits a dynamic, cosmopolitan lifestyle. It is the centerpiece of a collection that helps simplify the lives of today’s modern woman who does it all. The Joy Top combined with complementary dresses, pants, cardigans, t-shirts, and accessories are the embodiment of dihla b’s core philosophy:
versatile, effortless sophistication.

The Collection

The focus of the collection is easy chic: mix and match pieces that suit your personal style. The Joy top is designed to flatter the body in each of it’s transformations….looking wonderful from the front and the back..

Made in Italy, the collection is manufactured using only the most luxurious Italian fabrics with an eye to detail. From sumptuous crepe de chine and washed silks in an array of ice cream colors to ultra-refined viscose jersey in black, creme, gold and silver: you will feel sophisticated, beautiful and always ready to go.

Built around the Joy top, the complimentary pieces are designed to take this unique pieces’ wearability even further. The perfect basics… dresses, t-shirts, cardigans, leggings and pants all tailored in the highest quality jersey viscose in black and creme or cashmere silk blends in luscious colors. The accessories include supple Italian leather and fabric belts which coordinate with all the Joy top colors. The brilliant magnetic button lets you personalize your top and comes in gorgeous bursts of crystal. All together they create the total Joy Top look.
