IN CONVERSATION WITH ABHISHEK DUTTA

— ABHISHEK DUTTA

Today, in lieu of the pandemic and lockdown, sweatpants and shorts is a given. Though the path to reopening appears fraught with confusion, many of us are dreaming of trading dowdy clothing for something stylish — there is one difference though; our time in quarantine has redefined what that means and designers are quick to adapt to the new normal. In conversation with Abhishek Dutta, who is among the wave of conceptual designers sweeping Indian design sensibilities. Today, he is giving his creativity free rein for a collection that is stylish and keeps the wearer safe.

 

''Due to the pandemic, we tried design innovation which has given life to a collection of convertible garments that can be a part of your wardrobe forever. Of course, we designed masks right before the lockdown and are still doing a few exotic pieces but this collection is a breakthrough! Our face covers are a part of the garments! Some of the more interesting pieces are a stylish bomber whose oversized collar transforms into a three- layer face cover; the same happens with a bandhgala with an interesting wraparound style. Lapel jackets are a rage and our evening jacket has oomph and safety since it closes with an inbuilt mask. The creativity doesn't end here; our stylish gloves can be reusable with a  layer of disposable ones inside and the list goes on… these 'new normal' design innovations will help the fashion fraternity survive and excel. Also taking over the PPE kit is a convertible belt where a plastic suit with hidden printed appliqué set comes with ventilator filters. Our Indian wear doesn't take a backseat. We have come up with inbuilt masks and gloved blouses for sarees. Some sarees come with an antivirus Teflon coating — easily washable and reusable. This is just the first half of design innovations lined up by the brand which is soon to be coming up with AI operated fashion garments, expected by the end of this year! Stay tuned.''
