In the by-lanes of Colaba, Minoti Sampat has opened her second store of cult designer wear for children and would-be-mothers, called MAL.
With an eye for appreciating fashion as an art, the boutique is designed to allow people to relax, pause and appreciate. There is little to suggest that it is a retail store, it could be the boudoir of a little maharaja or choti maharani quite comfortable straddling the past and present. Vintage drying hangers, wooden chests, brass tea sets are befitting display stands for the clothes. The wooden flooring and antique cabinets and shoe racks gives a cute and charming look to the split level store.
Earlier this week, they had a small launch party where they had the designers who previewing their latest collections – Sonya Vajifdar, Sophie Z, Riddhika Jesrani, Anuj Sharma, Sonali Mansingka, Needy B and A.K.A Bespoke.
Neelakshi and Oiendrila Ray are excited to have launched their kidswear label Nee & Oink at Mal’s new store. With designs that capture the magic and enchantment of childhood, Nee & Oink launches trendy and comfy pieces to dress up toddlers and miniature adults aged 1-10 years. Whimsical designs, playful detailing and a little bit of naughtiness is the signature style!
The designer duo have hand-picked organic fabrics and eco- friendly dyes for their self-designed prints while keeping the fashion relaxed and functional for all children.
Guests were treated to yummy cup-cakes and candyfloss! Must have been bliss!
