Yesterday, I attended the launch of Bombay Dyeing #SignatureLineCollection at Tote On The Turf. It was an electric gathering of eclectic fashion enthusiasts cheering on Kallol Datta and Nachiket Barve, who unveiled their signature collections of bed and bath line for Bombay Dyeing. Both designers presented their respective Signature Line 2014 of bed sheets inspired and as an extension of their own signature styles in their clothing collections and their own design ideologies.

Kallol Datta showcased two collections, Artisanal and Elysian. As seen in his past art space settings, Datta kept his love for negative spacing and his own sharp artistic vision (that some consider dark but I think it’s just his own brand of brilliance).

The Artisanal range is heavy on one of his most recognized prints from his past collections, the clock. The collection note described Artisanal as a “Signature Line for the evolved individual who enjoys the finer things including the sheets they sleep on.”

Did you know that Kallol Datta also paints? Well, he does and you can now sleep on it! In the Elysian range, Datta took his artistic side to ‘bed’. Yup, the line of bed sheets and pillow case is a print heavy one with rich textures and colours. Hearts reign on this bed by Kallol Datta 1955.

Nachiket BArve’s Signature Collection for Bombay dyeing.

The happy and always sports-a-smile designer presented his Signature Collection named Toxin (Interesting name for a bed linen line). Maintaining the art and subtly-chic edge of his label, Barve interpreted the molecular structure of bio-toxins in the prints for the bed linen line.

On the other hand, Lightness Of Being range comes in a soft and pastel-heavy colour scheme. Barve researched that aqua blue was a perfectly soothing colour for bedtime.
