Arjun Saluja launches diffusion line
Arjun Saluja is all set to launch his diffusion line ‘Essentials’ today. Known for his sharp tailoring, androgynous style and exaggerated silhouettes, the designer’s new collection is a more muted version of his main line, Rishta. “My essential muse understands everyday life, its mundaneness and excitement, and weaves these emotions through the threads and cuts. It's essentially the sum total of her experience,” he says.
With the brand’s signature aesthetic at the core of it, the new line takes Indian silhouettes and gives them a contemporary update to make them more wearable – think tunics, bushirts, dhotis and salwar pants. The range also includes saris.
Colours are kept subdued, with garments made from fabrics like cotton mul, textured crepe and georgette twill, with prices ranging from Rs 7,500 to Rs 25,000.
‘Essentials’ will be available exclusively at Atosa in Mumbai.
