NACHIKET BARVE, the label stands for the philosophy that the designer believes in, which is that of luxury expressed in a contemporary, fresh and innovative way.
Nachiket creates his own textiles using the finest materials to bring about an amalgamation of intricate techniques and clean streamlined silhouettes, which show off the body to its best advantage.
The look of the range is international, while the elements that go into making it are Indian. The label stands for garments that are understated, comfortable yet luxurious, not mere slaves to trends. The products are universal in their appeal, being rooted in “Design” and being strong conceptually, while not losing out on their visual or tactile appeal.
The range consists of western garments for an international clientele as well as Indian garments for the domestic market with the emphasis on textiles.
The essence of the label lies in “Redefining Luxury” for a global audience.
