Forgo heavy ethnic outfits in favour of comfortable, beautiful pieces from Pantaloon’s new collaboration with designer, Krishna Mehta exclusively crafted with Liva Fabric.

As much as we yearn for warm sunny days, we are fretting at the sticky sweaty feeling it brings along. Not to let that icky feeling dampen our spirits this summer, we are on the path to finding beautiful and breathable Indian wear styles this summer.

The cardinal rule of summer dressing is to strike a balance between comfort and joy. While the traditional kurta does plenty to keep us cool and comfortable, it does little for our style quotient. Therefore, we are persistently in search of clothing styles that fit the bill. Throw in the sweltering temperatures of an Indian summer and we are basically left with limited options. So when we come across a summer-friendly alternative, we are heavy on praise and purchase.

Krishna Mehta’s Rangmanch collection exclusively crafted with Liva fabric is our summer saviour for small intimate celebrations and to brighten our stay-at-home mood. The magic ingredient here is the nature-based LIVA fabric made from cellulosic fibres that are used throughout the collection. 

The sustainable fabric gives your garments an exquisite flow, luxurious softness and drapes perfectly to keep feeling comfortable throughout the day. Designed with a fluid and comfort centred approach, Aditya Birla Group’s LIVA fabric truly lets your skin breathe while protecting you and making you look stylish.
