Jazzing up the evenings

 Dev and Nil.

The duo have specifically designed a separate collection for IPL and have worked on the evening wear. “The collection is part of our Spring-Summer 2010 range called A breath of fresh air. It’s light, frothy, fluid and fun,” Nil said.

About their designs for IPL, Nil says they did use a fair bit of embellishments but mostly in bright colours rather than contrasting ones. “We stress a lot on thread texturing but when it comes to evening wear, we do jazz up the pieces but with the belief ‘less is more’” says Nil. “This collection specifically plays with the concept of fluidity and structure. So in some pieces, you will see drapes from jersey and in others, quite a lot of form fitting. Overall, our sensibility is more towards creating classic pieces for one’s wardrobe,” he adds.

Dev and Nil have planned two separate lines of Indian wear and proper Western wear. “We are true to each of these categories rather than selling them under Indo-Western tags.

Over the last five years, our brand has become synonymous with quality, cuts and great colour combinations,” Nil explains. Commenting on the fashion scene in Bangalore, Nil observes, “From what we have seen over the last few years, the number of fashion-conscious people seem to have grown by leaps and bounds...so it’s doubly exciting for us to come and discover these people and expose them to ‘the wardrobes from the East’.”
