An envious range of Indian wear

An envious range of Indian wear

The design team of Biba always has something stunning up its sleeve. The brand’s designs not only look distinct but have a rich feel. Be it seasonal or for any special occasion, Biba’s range of Indian wear is envious to say the least.

The designers at Biba wait for summer to arrive as the season gives them the freedom to play around with bright colours and textures.

It gives them the liberty to experiment with their collection. 

The latest collection consists of an array of colourful and stunning ethnic wear. 

It is a mix of kurtas, tunics, kaftans and salwar kameez. 

It unfolds a line of exotic outfits in a kaleidoscope of colours, varying from soft pastels to vibrant solids in different shades and hues, showcasing a perfect range for work, casual and party wear. 

It comes in bright colours and the designers have done well to experiment with prints in new and exotic colours, whimsical patterns and fresh cuts. 

The brand stocks light flowy kurtas, the heavier ones that are more apt for an evening out and a range of bright and colourful kurtas that are perfect for college wear. 

The clothes at Biba are designed for women of all age groups. 

“Our product range boasts of unique cuts, design and pattern. We design keeping in mind our target audience, which varies from a girl as young as two to a woman aged 60 years,” explains the design team. 

The collection also has attractive designs by Manish Arora and Rohit Bal.  

What’s different about the clothes at Biba is that the designs are bold and playful. 

The design team reasons that being fashionable and providing good fits are two main things about Biba’s signature style, “We try to highlight one or a mix of both aspects in the garment at a time; be it the cut, print, work, colour or fabric.”

Biba has done well to cater to women from all walks of life — homemakers, working women, college students — among others. 

“Biba’s style echoes the Indian woman’s sensibility and the brand has evolved alongside the changing tastes of the consumers. We added the mix and match category to allow more experimentation,” notes the design team. 

It is not only important to wear the right kind of clothes. 

Care must also be taken to accessorise sensibly. 

“Accessories add an edge to everyday dressing. Accessorising depends on your outfit. Though traditional jewellery works best with ethnic wear, contemporary jewellery gives it a modern twist,” the team concludes. 

Meghna Babu, III year BA, Mount Carmel College, chose a block-printed flared kurta in a combination of white, black and prints.
