Haute style

You could call it the happening people's favourite. The ‘People’ brand is not really new to the City. It set shop here a few years ago but now this brand seems to be expanding like crazy. They stock some of the funkiest clothes.

The in-house designers make sure they do a lot of research about the present generation, their tastes, their choice of clothes and where they hang out – all this reflects in the design of the clothes that are original and  unique.

Metrolife spoke to the design team and brand head to get an insight into their
design philosophy.

‘People’ has women’s, men’s and kids’ wear. The designers make sure they design both the men’s and the women’s wear in keeping with the lifestyle of the young people. “It has to be youth-centric, both in cut and design. Our clothes are bright, colourful and are there for every season. The designs change with season,” explains the design team of ‘People’.

The team makes sure that every piece of garment fits perfectly with the fast, racy and fashionable outlook of the young in every growing City. Delving into the philosophy of what drives ‘People’ as a brand, R Sathyajit, COO, Casual business, Madura
Fashion and Lifestyle points out that the brand strives to make fashion more accessible and deliver to the youth the latest at affordable prices.

“We make products that are young, fashionable and yet wearable. We give the consumers the ability to choose and sport a ‘look’ as opposed to buying a single piece,” says Sathyajit. The women’s section has dresses, jeans, shorts, fashion tops, non-denim wear and an ethnic segment too. The men’s wear has casual shirts, fashion tops, polos, semi-formal shirts, denims and non- denims.  

Talking about what goes into the making of men’s wear, Sourav Chakraborty, head for designing men’s wear says that the designs are inspired by the lifestyle of young professionals. “The designs must make the wearer stand apart from the rest and feel good. It is unique in cut and the colours are bright,” he says. Talking more about the design, Sathyajit pitches in “It is the ability of the designers to absorb current trends and
curate them into a look that is relevant to our consumers. The cut, fit, style and colour are our ignature elements which together help create distinctive products and looks for our consumers.”

About accessories, the design team insists that every garment at ‘People’ needs to be accessorised, “All apparel can and must be accessorised.

Accessories allow one to experiment with a look and be very expressive. We have a fine range of accessories. We stress equally on this and are always looking to increase our offerings in this space,” adds Sathyajit.  There’s an impressive  range of bags in colourful shapes and sizes, belts, earrings, shawls, stoles, bangles, neckpieces... the buyer is sure to be spoilt for choices.
