WithA� free-flowing silhouettes inA�silk, crepes, muslins and linen, K-two is a fresh line of clothing by city-based designer Kaveri Lalchand. The theatre personality, who has been designing apparel sinceA� 2006, who was in Bangalore over the weekend to showcase her work.
K-two features apparel that uses the shibori dyeing method. While K Clothing is about comfort, like summery tunics, and Kaveri is about contemporary styles with clean cuts in textured linen, K-two is a�?designed to allow the natural drape of the cloth,a�? Lalchand says.
The inspiration for the new line comes from a visit to Japan. a�?I came back with images of garments swirling in my head.A�The logo, too, is drawn from Japanese symbols. I used the Japanese traditional method of tie and dye, shibori, which adds different shades and dimensions to the fabric,a�? the designer says. You will also find outfits in georgettes and colours like deep greens, bright blues, mauves and reds.
Lalchand believes K-two is worn by a�?someone who embraces life with passion and marvels in the mysteries of the world.a��a�� The designer, who believes in individual style and a�?listening to your thoughts,a�? started by designing clothes for herself and her friends. She took it up more seriously after a retail house, Cotton Collection in Sri Lanka, showed interest in her designs. when not designing for the brand, she has been doing a�?some smaller readings and solo performances, more recently in Sri Lanka.a�? Lalchand plans to make clothes from her label available online atA�kclothing.in fromA� March 1A�onwards. a�?One can also order custom tailored garments online, a�? Lalchand says.
K-two is available at K Clothing, College Lane. Priced between Rs 6,500 and Rs 9,000. Details: 45038391
