It’s Monday morning yet again and we’re all looking for inspiration other than the fancy typography splashed across Pinterest. At FRB (that’s Forty Red Bangles for the uninitiated!) we’ve been busy working on a new collection and we found that inspiration is everywhere. The sights and sounds on the streets of India inspire us with every step we take. It’s great to indulge in a little wanderlust sometimes in the name of work!
We like to think that there is a little wandering soul inside us, a little red camel so to speak, that slowly plods along with us, taking in all the unique experiences we’ve encountered on our travels. Whether it is going down the winding lanes of Jodhpur taking in the intricate jaali windows and archways framing picture perfect scenes within or getting lost in the exotic smell of tropical fruits and local spices at a flea market in Goa or even narrowly escaping speeding traffic on the bustling streets of Mumbai. Our little red camel is as curious as they come, craning his neck to catch glimpses of the extraordinary beauty in everyday life. With his help, we captured images and ideas that have been translated creatively across our new collection.
Before we showcase the collection in it’s entirety, we decided to give you a few sneak peeks to whet your appetite . So awaken your inner red camel and join us on a little journey through the latest Forty Red Bangles Collection…
Walk through the archway and discover an all new FRB, with new prints, new products and a new outlook.
We have created a series of FRB jaalis which on their own are iconic to Indian life and together form a delicate pattern that makes up the background of the collection. The jaalis are splashes across a variety of mediums to add texture, along with color and form. You can look forward to a range of elegant menswear and womenswear with coordinating accessories. There is also a stationery line with everything you need to get that important sentiment out to your loved ones and even home furnishings to bring the red camel’s story to your home.
This time, our travels also took us further than ever before and we decided to add our new favorite cities to our collection of four signature candles. Historic Delhi and carefree Goa join the “From India with Love” range of candles. Not only will these now come in cute, travel-friendly tins but we’ve been experimenting with new formulations to give you the best fragrance throw in an an all natural, deliciously fragrant candle. One whiff of these and you will be transported to Mughal darbars and tropical, sandy beaches!

As for our kids collection, as we have just recently introduced the the Little Raja and Rani line, we will be adding a whole bunch of accessories to make it cuter and cuddlier (hint, hint).
We know you can’t wait to get your hands on everything but you’ll have to be patient for just a while longer while we put on the finishing touches. But like all things good, it will definitely be worth the wait and we shall showcase each new collection in a fantastic way where all our fans can get involved and even win some goodies!
So watch this space and meanwhile, we encourage you to take your own little red camel for a walk and tell us, what inspired you today?
