Mumbai, May 23 (IANS) Designer Sanjay Garg of the Raw Mango brand launched his Summer’16 garment collection exclusively at Bungalow 8 here.
The garments will be available in the store from Monday to June 23, read a statement.
Garg’s line notes the ephemeral days in which trees haze green and buds remain clenched pre-bloom, as nature finds new roots through those older.
The capsule collection uses chanderi and organza along with hues of white, ivory, gold and blush.
It features a singular bud motif, woven on a handpicked jaala and inlaid into the weave using an extra weft. Seams are joined with the introduction of silk-cotton gold tissue.
“Bungalow 8 takes risks. Every designer likes to be pushed out of their comfort zone. I like that they constantly challenge what I do,” Garg said.
Maithili Ahluwalia, owner of Bungalow 8, said: “What I love about this series is that it is both a continuation of but also a departure. It’s fresh to see tradition and technology being woven together in such an effortless way; its local but global, it’s an unexpected take on tradition, it’s the old done new.”
She added: “We have already started to think about what a desi Africa, which is our spirit for the fall, would look like for our next edition.”
