BRANDS OF THE WEEK

Hello everyone ! Sorry for the gap in posts… Here’s a new column we kickstarted on our facebook page, to help introduce more Indian design labels to you everyday.

Bringing you a new brand each day, here are the chosen BRAND OF THE DAY for the last week !

kunst botd collage

BRAND OF THE DAY : 14.06.13 : KUNST

The go-to brand for all bags glittery & gold ! Owned by the pretty lady, Diksha Rampal – Kunst has a clutch for every occasion, from the summer luncheons to the hyper Indian weddings.

BRAND OF THE DAY : 15.06.13 : Mosaic Fashion Accessories

Ruchi Singhvi runs the pretty pearls-&-roses workshop in Jodhpur which turns up with new colors each season to brighten up our daily outfits. Not to take away from the graceful evening-wear pieces, which can be paired with cocktail dresses & sarees. Love how the bold colors are mixed up – So summer !

TGFD PICK : Neon Rose series.

katputli-botd

BRAND OF THE DAY : 16.06.13 : KATPUTLI

From the narrow bylanes of Delhi, comes the sweet sound of summer – and a playful one at that ! Katputli refers to the mopey rajasthani puppets, and Anisha Agarwal takes her love for classic shapes to create a fusion line to beat the heat.

TGFD PICK : The subtle silhouettes

chalk-botd

BRAND OF THE DAY : 17.06.13 : CHALK STUDIO

Shoeholicism is a serious illness… And we aren’t searching for a cure ! Nupur Nagpal mixes up the bright summer palette with conversational prints for sandals and ballet pumps. Highly recommended for people looking beyond the dowdy black & brown shoes. The production is in-house and heels are coming up next !

TGFD PICK : TwoToneToes & Contrasts

Chaap-BOTD

BRAND OF THE DAY : 18.06.13 : CHAAP

The studio of all things graphic, funky and type, Chaap is truly a modern take on the mundane products around us. Helmed by Shreya Budhiraja, their current CMYK collection is definitely going to get your attention. They focus on stationary and desk items, but you can get them to customize products as well. Good to see Indian design finally taking notice of typography.

TGFD PICK : Typography & WordPlay

pink-basket-botd

BRAND OF THE DAY : 19.06.13 : PINK BASKET
Once upon a time, precious stones came as boring & bland studs. Along came Samiksha Mehra and her basket full of creative ideas and edgy twists to stones & metals. Pink Basket offers a wide range of jewelry with colored stones in innovative cuts and settings, making it perfect for summer outings.

TGFD PICK : Modern twists to Precious stones.

Doodlage-BOTD

BRAND OF THE DAY : 20.06.13 : DOODLAGE

They started doodling last year and we’re still loving it ! A whole lot of love for discarded clothing and factory extras brought together Kriti, Divisha, Vaibhav & Paras to start Doodlage. Focused on using what is left over, they started with apparel patchworks and applique and have now expanded to a handbags range. This brand becomes unique from the very beginning thanks to their raw material, but kudos to them for never letting the designs and structured garments be hampered by the limitations of sourcing.

TGFD PICK : Recycle & Upcycle.
