The collection ‘truck drivers, banana sellers’ takes on the street narrative in India.
It’s inspired by all the little and big things like labor unions, street vendors, and a sliver of hope for democracy.
The designs themselves resituate parts of Indian design aesthetics into a more contemporary approach.
The entire look is developed around two staple pieces from the common Indian man’s wardrobe-
the ‘lungi’ (low-waisted men’s wrap skirt) and the ‘baniyan’ (undershirt or a vest, innerwear).
The look plays with the idea of genderless fashion.
An iteration of the madras plaid drapes itself around the body in a low-hung skirt, a take on the ‘lungi’,
paired with an intricately textured sweater.
The sweater peeks through a hollowed-out ‘baniyan’ (vest) with carefully constructed floats.
The last piece that goes on is the ‘pièce de résistance’- the all-knit structured corset.
These four mix-and-match pieces can be worn in multiple ways, thus incentivizing the customer to buy less
and make the most out of every piece. 25% of the look is made using deadstock yarns.
